Even after all these years, any bike ride feels like an escape for pro mountain biker Claire Buchar. Whether it's pitting herself against the clock, chasing friends through the bike park, or just getting out for a soul-feeding pedal, any time spent on two wheels is quality time. Crested Butte, Colorado is one of those places where anything is possible on a bike, so naturally Buchar felt at home. With the days getting shorter and the leaves changing color, Buchar took some time to explore the trails winding through the famous aspen groves and re-connect with nature.
