2015 Vintage MTB Gathering-3

The 3rd Annual Colorado Vintage MTB Gathering brought out an incredible array of vintage machinery! From Slingshots to Team Issued bikes to pre-war klunkers, the year’s celebration was the best yet.

The 13 mile round-trip ride combined the right amount of tough uphill and crazy-fun downhill through the trees of Betasso Preserve. Aside from a few flat tires, these 20+ year old rigs did exactly what they were built to do, ride hard terrain! While many of us awoke with sore knees and shoulders on Monday morning, it was well worth the experience of riding the bikes that paved the way for our sport.

Another big thanks goes out to the fine folks at Upslope Brewing and Yellowbelly Chicken for providing the post-ride BBQ!

The Velocitech Mountain Machine hill climb topped off a great day! We look forward to riding with all of you again next year!

After the ride, the Mountain Machine was put to the test and well…this happened.
