Colorado Experience Roadshow: Salida

Join us for a free screening of the new Colorado Experience episodes "Mountain Biking" and "Ghost Towns." About "Mountain Biking:" Colorado and the west are where American mountain biking began. From the Denver Athletic Club’s Pikes Peak summit on bicycles in 1891, to Buffalo Soldiers’ riding to Yellowstone in 1897, mountain biking has long had a place in Colorado. Its modern debut came in 1978, when mountain biking pioneers from Marin County, California, visited Crested Butte’s 2nd “Klunker Tour.” Since then, Crested Butte has led the state in creating single track and inspiring other towns to cater to this now-Olympic sport. About "Ghost Towns:" According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, Colorado “has more than 1,000 ghost towns, over 600 of which have some sort of remains.” Visit St.

Elmo, Animas Forks, and Ashcroft, three of the best-preserved ghost towns in the state, and meet the spirits of Colorado’s mining past. The episodes premieres on Rocky Mountain PBS: "Mountain Biking:" 1/18/18 "Ghost Towns:" 11/9/17 .
