Bridges of the Butte Virtual Townie Tour Sponsored by Bank of the West

Participants ride in costumes at Bridges of the Butte

We hope this finds you safe and healthy. As you are well aware, the COVID19 situation in the Gunnison Valley continues to evolve on a daily basis. The county has discussed guidelines concerning attendance limits for events this summer which suggest the largest allowable event size for August and September could be 50 people. In light of these uncertainties, we have decided to hold a virtual Bridges of the Butte.  

While we are devastated that we cannot rally together and ride laps around (and around) town this year, we are hard at work to ensure that our virtual event will inspire community and fun through biking. As always, the event will strive to raise scholarship funds for people with disabilities to experience life-enhancing outdoor adventures with the Adaptive Sports Center!  Our event committee has come up with some creative ideas that we are excited to start sharing with you soon. 

Meanwhile, please mark your calendar for the start of the virtual event on Saturday, August 29.
