This is just a short video documenting a bike ride from Crested Butte to Aspen Colorado. Its 1980 and everybody is on a klunker of some sort. There are even some kids on what looks like 20'' bmx bikes. By way of fire roads, off road trails, and some pavement the pack makes it to 12,000 ft and then a nice "rocky" ride down Pearl Pass finishing a long fast pavement section to Aspen. All to "Just show the Aspen folk what it means to bar hop in Crested Butte style". Talk about a 1up, ha!
There is so many little deets that could be so easily overlooked that I simply love. From the mustaches to the music they have playing. To how psyched and nervous everybody is, and the bikes!
The best display of doing something epic, but making it the most fun thing. Also reminding us of what we may think is "epic" groups of rad peeps were already doing 36 years ago on bikes with just a fraction of the technology. I could say more but just advise to watch the videos.

Did you notice the wide bars and slack head tube angles, somethings never change.
