I’ve climbed Mount Elbert a few times, but I’ve never felt inclined to hike-a-bike to the top. Pretty awesome feat.
A mountain bike film about an overnight bikepacking journey on Colorado’s tallest 14er: Mount Elbert.
In October of 2020, talented downhill rider Darric Roark hiked up, camped on, and descended Mount Elbert in an overnight mountain biking adventure. This wild alpine ride came with both pain and thrills, from ascending the Black Cloud trail, to camping in 15 degrees at 14,000 feet, to ripping down the mountain in an exhilarating sunrise descent.
