Inside / Out at Myth Cycles in Durango: Not Your Imagination

Just past the Animas River and tucked into a neighborhood back alley lies a modified garage holding one of the newer secrets of Durango. There is no signage, no storefront, no Google Maps locator. Nope, your only hint at what lies behind these doors is a subtle triskelion logo on the side door. This is the headquarters for Myth Cycles, the most recent continuation of handbuilt bicycles in Durango, Colorado.

Can you take the ‘City’ from the ‘Mountain’?

Dear Action Line: Please settle a longstanding argument between my boyfriend and I. I insist that “Animas City Mountain” (and corresponding trail) is named as such. He is certain it must be named just “Animas Mountain.” I have seen ACM on most maps, apps and in reference articles, yet unfortunately the sign at the trailhead does (I'll begrudgingly admit) display “Animas Mountain.” We are hoping you can clear things up as only Action Line can. Thank you for your help. – Durango Hiker.
