Just 20-some minutes west of Vail where the Rockies sweep down to join Colorado’s Western Slope, Eagle is known as a secret stash for mountain bikers. Appearing on the national radar screen just a few short years ago as it launched its unique Singletrack Sidewalks program, Eagle has quietly, yet authoritatively asserted itself as as “the next, best place to live”.
Launched over 10 years ago, the Eagle Outside Festival was created to showcase Eagle’s great weather, fantastic dining, a rapidly maturing craft brewing scene and best of all, its sprawling trail network. The trails are the star of the show at our event. Spanning three different climate zones (from high desert to high alpine and everything in between,) they’re also accessible from just about anywhere in town.
The centerpieces of our festival are the free consumer demo and the insanely sweet Firebird XC race on one of the fastest purpose built cross country courses anywhere. The demo attracts the bike industry’s best brands and the racing is top-notch. As an extra bonus, attendees can enjoy The Bonfire Block Party, a downtown throw-down of a street party with national touring musicians, great craft beer and more in a unique downtown venue. There’s a little something for everyone here in Eagle the weekend of June 2-4, so think about heading our way for your riding, racing and music-loving fix!
