Each year, Crested Butte plays host to the Pearl Pass Mountain Bike Tour, the world's longest running bike event. Dating back almost 30 years, this event celebrates the rich history of biking in Crested Butte and the people in Colorado who pioneered the state. The oldest mountain bike event in the world is repeated year after year on a September weekend. The first tour happened in 1976 when a group of Crested Butte rowdies pedaled and pushed their one-speed klunkers over the 12,705 ft. pass and on into Aspen. They didn't know what they were creating.
