Description

The Amerind Museum presents the 3rd Annual Texas Canyon Mountain Bike Ride, sponsored by Sulphur Springs Valley Electric Cooperative, Inc. and the Mahoney Group. Here’s your chance to intimately experience this awe-inspiring region that is normally closed to the public. Come out and ride a scenic course in beautiful Texas Canyon. Participation in the event enables Amerind to further its mission of fostering and promoting knowledge and understanding of the Native Peoples of the Americas through research, education, conservation, and community engagement. 

The race starts at 6:30 am. for the 2 lap (15.8 mile) division and 6:40 am for the 1 lap (7.9 mile) division. E-bikes will start at 6:45 am - AFTER all competitive riders have cleared the start line. 

The Race Course

The race will be held entirely within Texas Canyon on the Amerind Foundation property. We believe you will experience mountain biking at its best on a course that takes you on one or two 7.9-mile loops through spectacular Texas Canyon, an area that will only be open to the public on race day. Helmets are required. Please remember no dogs and no headsets, in compliance with our insurance requirements---- you will really want to be “in the moment” anyway. The course is gravel and mountain bike friendly; e-bikes are permitted to participate ONLY in the non-competitive division.

Aid Stations - BYOB

This is a BYOB event- bring your own bottle of hydration. You must be 100% self-sufficient. There will be no aid stations on the course. 

Registration and Packet Pick-Up

Onsite registration and packet pick-up will begin on race day at 5:30 am. Please arrive at least 30 minutes before your start time to allow time to pick up your packet, park, and attach your number plate.
