    Our very good friend Mike Long took a tumble on his mountain bike a few weeks ago. He sustained a shoulder injury which he had to have surgery on.
    I've collected some money to help with medical bills via The Huntsville Race this coming weekend and will be sending him a check next week. If anyone else is inclined to help out with, hollar. We've got $550 so far.

    I donation jar for Mike at registration might be a good idea.

    Dave, for the past three years this has been the best bicycling event that I've ever attended. I feel it's better than any of the races that happened out there. There is so much riding out there and the race tied you to just doing the race loop which is a small portion of what is available.

    Camping is now back in Lajitas at the RV Park.

    Here is my typical agenda:

    Weds. Depart 5AM arrive around noon. Ride the Lajitas trail system loops 1/2/3/4 most of it was a part of the Mas-O-Menos and Chihuahuan Desert Classic race courses.

    Thurs. Old Ore Rd. ride in Big Bend Nat'l Park – 35ish miles. It starts toward the North side of the park in Dagger Flats and ends in the SouthEast at Langford Hot Springs. Old Ore is a fast course with changing scenery and you have the Chisos Mountains in view the majority of the trek. Post ride dip in Langford Hot Springs is the proverbial "icing on the cake".

    Fri. Since I purchased a Nat'l Park pass for Thurs. ride I like to more value out of it and go back and find a hike that I've not done before. Last year it was Mule Ears.

    Sat. Big Bend Ranch State Park ride. Crystal Trail. Dome Trail. Fresno Creek. Rincon Loop. Lots of options. Last year Tony and I strung together a 35ish mile ride.

    Sun. Ride a little bit of the Lajitas trail system before heading home.

    Hope you make it out, again... it's the best bicycling event that I've ever attended.

    Oh man, I was kind of hoping you had a picture of that hula girl from 2 or 3 years ago.

    It's beginning to look a lot like Valentimes...

    Pre-registration for the Chihuahuan Desert Bike Fest is OPEN!!

    Author: kt_desertsports; Published: Dec 12, 2012; Category: Current Events, General, Mountain Bike Event, Tours, Trails; Tags: Big Bend Info, Mountain Bike, Tours; No Comments

    You can always tell when it’s December at Desert Sports… suddenly everyone’s talking about the Bike Fest. Yesterday Pre-registration opened and we’ve already got six folks signed up for the adventure!

    The chat around the waterfilter yesterday was all about finalizing the ride schedule… which is hard to do for sure! There were a huge number of rides last year and it sounds like all those rides will be on the schedule again (including the 2-day Epic Options) and there’s been talk about a really exciting new “Rock House Tour”: a full day interpretive mountainbike-ranger-guided tour of significant rock ruins in the State Park.

    There’s a cool new (repurposed!) bridge on the Lajitas Trails thanks to the Big Bend Trails Alliance, and thanks to the folks who support the Trails Alliance’s efforts by coming out to the Bike Fest! So it just seems like it’s all bikes, bikes, bikes all the time! Oh, and Desert Sports has just became the newest Specialized dealer in Texas; so you’ll see local guides out sporting their very own Epic Carbon 29ers… which means there’ll be some demo bikes left in the fleet for the Saturday EPIC (tee hee).

    Visit bikereg.com to pre-register online (with credit cards), or click [here] to download a form to fill in and mail (with a cheque). Visit our host resort Lajitas Golf Resort & Spa to make your accommodation reservations: they’ve got some good “Three nights for Two” promotions that still have space on the Bike Fest weekend (Feb 14-16) and they have deals for rooms and Tent and RV Sites for Bike Fest Adventurers.

    Wheeeeee! This is gonna be so much fun!!
    -George

    It's getting close! Sooooooo, who will commit to a campsite. I definitely want to camp. aLaN and I talked at the STORM Christmas party and agreed to go to the Lajitas campground. Some would say it is too sterile as opposed to the Boathouse in Terlingua, but the amenities are nicer. Also, those with RV's will be more inclined to come to Lajitas if they can be part of the group. One of my objectives is to have us be more inclusive.

    You can drive to the rides, or drive to the restaurants, but either way you will drive! Those of you who have decided to hotel it, STFU. If the consensus is another campsite I will certainly change. So, those who are camping...what say ye?
