The Chainless Downhill is one of the highlights of Crested Butte Bike Week, the world’s oldest mountain bike festival. In this race, riders compete to see who can wear the most outrageous costume, ride the most unusual bike, or set the fastest time riding down the 7-mile-long road into downtown Crested Butte. Things can get a little wild when the riders come into town at high speed, as you can see in this photo. In addition to the fun and lunacy of this race, there are numerous other races and events, plus tons of great trails in the surrounding mountains to explore. They all add up to make this an extremely fun diversion for those who want to check it out. This year the event is June 26-29, in Crested Butte, Colorado. Photo: Mountain Bike Action
