Watch: The Monarch Crest Trail Is Still the Definition of Epic

At this point, I’m not sure I can remember how many times I’ve ridden the Monarch Crest Trail in Salida, Colorado. Doesn’t matter. Every time, whether the sun shines bright, I’m wading through hip-deep snow, getting pelted with hail as I cross the Continental Divide, or watching legendary frame builder Don McClung cruise past rocking a rigid singlespeed, the Crest brings the big show.

Tough climbs, incredible views, ripping descents… and big smiles.

Every time.
