Your Big Bend Adventure Connection

Chihuahuan Desert Bike Fest!



It was another exciting year for some AWESOME bike adventures out here in deep West Texas. While the wind and snow were blowing in the rest of the country, Terlingua, TX was the place to be for 470 mountainbikers on Presidents’ Day Weekend.

Desert Sports, Big Bend Ranch State Park, Big Bend National Park and Lajitas Resort threw their annual three-day bike festival (even-though it rained on Thursday!) ….geared to dirt lovers of every size, ability and adventure-readiness. Riders from far and wide chose from an exciting menu of guided rides on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and some tried out the unique 2-day self-guided EPIC Option; and some just wandered on the open trails of the Big Bend Ranch State Park and Lajitas Golf Resort at their leisure. 

Watch here this week for more photos!… and we’ll see y’all back out here next Presidents’ Day Weekend. YeeHaw!!

This year Santa Cruz, Juliana, Scott, and Rocky Mountain all got in
on the Demo action. So many bikes to ride! There was something for everyone!

In 2014 we all hung out at the Maverick Ranch RV Park at the Lajitas Resort and enjoyed evening socials over Kegs provided by awesome sponsorship partners and since it was so fun the last four times we’re inviting y’all over to do it all again! So what are you doing President’s Day Weekend?? We’ll open pre-registration in the first week of December so you’ve still got a couple of weeks to cross that date off the calendar, book your days off work, get the bikes all tricked out and call the babysitter. We’ll have feasts and festivities and biking Galore and we’d love for y’all to join us.
