Registration is now open for the seventh-annual Dirt Rag Dirt Fest, aka the most awesome mountain bike festival in America, aka the most fun you can have camping and riding your bike. This year’s event, presented by Pivot Cycles, takes place May 20-22, 2016, at Raystown Lake in central Pennsylvania.
You’ll find 36 miles of fast, fun, flowy trails known as the Allegrippis Trails System just a few pedal strokes away from event headquarters and a new trail on the other side of the lake accessible only via boat, the Terrace Mountain Trail. The trails are perfect for chasing your buddies all day or demoing new bike after new bike from one of our many attending bike brands.
Weekend shenanigans will include (but are not limited to):
- Bike and gear demos from several companies
- Women’s mountain bike clinics
- Skills park
- Gravel rides
- Themed rides/races featuring fat bikes, costumes, nighttime darkness, kids, whatever else we come up with
- Live music
- Craft beer and beer tasting clinics
- Wheelie competitions and the like
- New friends, old friends
A portion of the proceeds from Dirt Rag Dirt Fest go directly to support the Allegrippis Trails System via the Friends of Raystown Lake Trails Fund. Since the event began, we have been able to donate more than $20,000 to the trails, which helps keeps them open and maintained. Go us.
See you there!
