Colorado Experience Roadshow: Gunnison
January 16, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us for a free screening of the new Colorado Experience episodes “Mountain Biking” and “Paleo Indians.”
About “Mountain Biking:”
Colorado and the west are where American mountain biking began. From the Denver Athletic Club’s Pikes Peak summit on bicycles in 1891, to Buffalo Soldiers’ riding to Yellowstone in 1897, mountain biking has long had a place in Colorado. Its modern debut came in 1978, when mountain biking pioneers from Marin County, California, visited Crested Butte’s 2nd “Klunker Tour.” Since then, Crested Butte has led the state in creating single track and inspiring other towns to cater to this now-Olympic sport.
About “Paleo Indians:”
Evidence of prehistoric mammals and early humans have been discovered across Colorado. Lamb Spring in Douglas County is home to the largest collection of Columbian mammoth bones in the state, offering archaeological insight into these prehistoric dwellers. The discoveries of Lindenmeier near Ft. Collins and Mountaineer in Gunnison reveal much about the people who lived here over 10,000 years ago.
The episodes premieres on Rocky Mountain PBS:
