Texas Canyon Mountain Bike Race

Texas Canyon Mountain Bike Race
Saturday, May 18, 2024  (please note the date change from March 9th)

This year the Amerind will hold the 5th Annual Texas Canyon Mountain Bike Race in May rather than September.

We hope you will come out on May 18th to ride in this awe-inspiring region which is normally closed to bikes. 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.

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.

Open to ages 12 -99.

In addition to their medals, the overall winners of 15.8 and the 7.9 race will receive a piece of Native American art.

Shirts commemorating your ride can be purchased during the registration process for $24.

Want to participate as a group with your coworkers, organization or club? contact us for details on discounts and arrangements, we make it easy.

After the Race, step inside the Museum and simply show your bike plate number or free guest passes to the admission desk for free entry into the Amerind Museum, Art Gallery, included with registration. Bring a picnic lunch or grab a bite at one of the food vendors and make a day of it!

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.

Whether you’re an experienced mountain bike racer or just want to ride in the non-competitive category, this is the perfect opportunity to challenge yourself, meet new people and have fun!

We hope to see you Saturday, May 18!
