    2014 Tribe Gathering

    The details for the 2014 Tribe Gathering just got released. Anyone going? I'm purchasing a ticket now and can't wait! This will be my first Tribe Gathering after wanting to go for the past two years. Can't wait to shred some Colorado single track! The dates are July 18-20 in Durango at the resort with lift access. Tickets are 145 bucks for the weekend which includes camping, food, lift tickets, and some freebies. Driving from SoCal so if anyone wants to carpool let me know!

    I would love to go too. Will be my first time and going solo.
    I have no idea what the trails are like there and how good I will fare on them either. Should I be worried about joining?

    The rides are tough for sure, but if you get yourself into shape and don't try to hang with some of my insane coworkers at the front of the pack, you should be fine. We also offer several easier for all abilities.

    Sidebar: three years ago, some maniac from Japan came over for the Breck Tribe and did one of the craziest things I've ever seen on a bike. It was the hardest ride I've done - Kenosha pass up over Georgia Pass and back to Breck. Anyway, the morning of the ride, this Japanese dude shows up at the shuttle wearing jean shorts and riding a DJ with about 2 feet of seat post exposed, and myself and the rest of the staff start putting odds on whether we're going to need to med-evac him out of the ride somewhere.

    I lost track of the dude after the group photo at the start of the ride, but my GF said that back at the campground, as the first few riders came in looking like death warmed over, here was that Japanese guy near the front of the pack riding a one-handed wheelie, looking fresh as a daisy, and grinning ear to ear. The dude crushed it, and he's become a legend around our office. We still don't know his name or his back-story though. Hahaha.

    I wouldn't sweat it too much! Yes there will be some climbing probably and some altitude but the Tribe is some of the nicest and coolest people you'll meet.

    I went solo last year, made friends instantly with a group and off we went. We rode our pace, took in the scenery and just had a blast. The festivities were fun, the food and the beer were great. I'm pretty sure you'll have fun

    You should do it. It doesn't matter how fast or good you are. It's all about riding your bike in a great place with awesome people!

    I'm sure the altitude will be killer! I guess I better start doing more rides in Big Bear ha ha.

    Do yourself a favor and make this trip

    If you have never been, this is the one to go to. Durango is some of the best riding that the state has to offer I think you can still do a lap of the 1st MTB World Championships at DMR.

    The CO Trail sections are awesome, they might even be throwing down some of the same courses that will be used in BME Durango. If you have an extra day, drive the 45 minutes west to Cortez and ride at Phils World.

    Everybody at Yeti is committed to having fun and this won't be any different. Food, beer, prizes, beer, riding, beer, riding, laughs, a giant muffler of spirits. What could go wrong?

    I'll be coming from SW Missouri and it'll be my first tribe! Super stoked but a little nervous about my 1X10. Anyone have experience with Durango? Running a 30 x 11-36. To give you an idea, local trails are mostly sprints up the trail and down. very few long climes or descents. Either way, gonna be a great weekend!!

    Hey Jason,

    From one flatlander to another...No worries. I'm running the same set-up on my 66. I was at the last Durango Tribe Gathering and the trails are most definitely hilly. There has to be some hills around you that you can just work over and over? The altitude will get you before the climbs. You will have an epic time and will be planning your next Tribe before you know it. I'll see you there. My buddies and I are the only guys from Iowa that go every year.
    Epic Ride. Epic Lunch.

    Thanks for the encouraging words man. I'll probably be one of the few from Missouri but I can't wait. My fiancÚ and I have a trip to Boulder for our honeymoon a couple of months prior, so that should give me and idea about what to expect elevation-wise. Definitely looking forward to excessively long descents tho!

    +1...You shouldn't notice the altitude too much around Durango. You'll feel a lot better altitude wise in a day or two as well. It's the alpine rides above 9k-10k with a lot of climbing that usually give flatlanders issues. Can't really prevent that except acclimate or live above 9k. Shuttle rides like Hermosa Creek start new 9k but is mostly downhill for the first 2/3. If you've never been to CO before, think about extending your trip and heading up to Crested Butte to ride around there and also hit Monarch Crest near Salida, you'll thank me later

    Finally was able to purchase my ticket this morning for my first Tribe event, we have several folks from the ATL area heading that way, only some of us talk funny though! The biggest dilemma is whether to head out for the full week and ride some dual sport motorcycle or more Yeti!

    I don't have confirmation yet, but we always have fresh water available, and there's usually either proper showers or a nice creek nearby. BBQ pits depend on weather, but you shouldn't need them anyway - there's a TON of food being catered in.

    Regarding weather in Durango, this link is useful:

    Hate to be "that guy" but would that wonderful newly legal substance in Colorado have any place at the tribe? I would be traveling from IL and not sure what the attitudes are out there yet, I of course want to show the utmost respect to the tribe. Thanks!

    I am getting my final pennies saved for an x01 Arc Carbon and once I do I plan on grabbing a ticket!
