Bridges of the Butte Townie Tour


August 28 – September 11

This summer marks our 18th year of Bridges of the Butte and promises to be the most fun you'll have on wheels! Over the course of two weeks, you, our loyal supporters, can pedal your buttes off and support the ASC! Funds raised during Bridges of the Butte will help to provide affordable lessons, state-of-the-art equipment, and highly-trained instructors in many disciplines and disability adaptions.

Participate from anywhere!

August 28 – September 11

We love seeing you in Crested Butte, but now you can show your love from afar by joining us in our annual fundraiser! Starting on August 28th, we encourage you to set a challenge, share your personal fundraising webpage (free with registration), and ride for good! We’ll have fun challenges to join along the way with prizes to be won!

Starting with two weeks of virtual bike fun on August 29th and culminating with a live event on September 12th, the Adaptive Sports Center hosted the 17th annual Bridges of the Butte Townie Tour presented by Bank of the West.
