The venue: SOUTH MAIN GUNNISON | GUNNISON, COLORADO
A communal artistry space with a rich history, South Main Gunnison is the perfect venue for the second annual Bikepacking Summit. Spread out across two buildings with multiple rooms, the summit will be held in multiple spaces including a gallery with a wood burning stove, a metal smith’s workshop, a yoga studio and an outdoor stage with the backdrop an old train car. Surrounded by readily available singletrack trails and expansive gravel roads, a tee pee, camp fires, food trucks and locally brewed beer, the atmosphere will be spot-on for the 2018 Bikepacking Summit.
The group rides will be a casual way to connect with your peers and enjoy the beauty of Colorado singletrack. The Hartman Rocks and Signal Peak trail systems, along with plenty of gravel riding options are equipped for the full spectrum of riding abilities. We will cater the rides depending on rider turnout and will have the flexibility to split groups based on ability and distance if need be. These will be no-doubt no-drop rides, the point is to spend time outside, check out each others rigs and geek out on bikes.
Early-bird pricing for the weekend pass will be live through May 15, 2018. From there, we will run with regular registration price through the cut-off time of September 7, 2018. Single-day pricing will remain the same throughout the entire registration process. See you there!
