2013 Chihuahuan Desert Bike Festival – short summary

The 3rd annaul Chihuahuan Desert Bike Festival has come and gone and did we have have a GREAT time this year.

A total of 13 BVMBA’ers made the long journey to the Maverick RV Park in Lajitas, Tx.  to set camp for the next 4 days of biking and fellowship.

Day 1 of the festival was the famous Ore Road ride out to the Hot springs on East side of the Chisos Mt.  We split in to two group (32 milers and 18 milers).  It didn’t matter which group you were in because the outcome was an AWESOME day of riding.  Back at camp we all gather for dinner and conversation about the day and somewhat get organized for day two.

Day 2 started a little colder and windier than we all anticipated but quickly warmed up as Collin and Dana were kind enought to make pancakes and sausage links for the group.  We still haven’t quite decided how to repay them back for that treat. Put we’ll start with a THANK YOU!!

After  breakfast several members of our group decided to rent demo bikes from Specialized.  Boy did they get spoiled on the Lajitas trail on this day.  Althouth we broke up into smaller groups we had another GREAT day on the trails.

Day 3 was EPIC day.  The majority of the group had the chance to ride all or part of what were the best trails of the trip (in my opinion).  After another long day on the bike we all got ready to hit the Starlite Theatre for dinner.

Day 4  was the end of the trip.  Time to break camp, pack the vehicles and get back home.
