8:00-8:30 am Rolling Start

The Amerind Museum presents the 4th Annual Texas Canyon Mountain Bike Fun Ride. Come out and ride the scenic 7.8-mile course in the beautiful Texas Canyon Nature Preserve.  Enjoy time riding with your friends, and family, or by yourself through the awe-inspiring Texas Canyon Nature Preserve which is only open to bikes twice a year. 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 Fun Ride will have a “rolling start.” After you arrive and collect your packet, you are free to start your ride anytime between 8:00 am and 8:30 am. To keep the event both fun and safe, helmets are required to be worn by all participants.

Shirts commemorating your ride can be purchased during the registration process. Commemorative finishers’ medals will be given to the first 250 registrants. After the Fun Ride, grab a bite from one of the food trucks then step inside the Museum to explore the exhibits. Your race registration includes free entry into the Amerind Museum and Art Gallery. Simply show your bike plate number or free passes to the admissions desk to take advantage of this offer.

E-Bikes are welcome.

The Amerind Museum presents the 4th Annual Texas Canyon Mountain Bike Race, sponsored by 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 7:30 am. for the 2 lap (15.8 mile) division and 7:40 am for the 1 lap (7.9 mile) division. E-bikes will start at 7:45 am – AFTER all competitive riders have cleared the start line.
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. Also available is a non-competitive 7.9-mile e-bike course. The course is gravel and mountain bike friendly; e-bikes are permitted to participate ONLY in the non-competitive division.

Shirts commemorating your ride can be purchased during the registration process for $24.  After the Race, step inside the Museum to explore the exhibits. Your race registration includes free entry into the Amerind Museum and Art Gallery. Simply show your bike plate number to the admissions desk to take advantage of this offer.

We hope to see you Saturday, September 23!
