Here at Dirt Rag we love all kinds of riding, not just mountain biking. That’s why we launched our sister magazine, Bicycle Times, in 2009. This year we’re adding some adventure to the mix with a new event—in the spirit of Dirt Rag’s Dirt Fest—where cyclists of all types can share a weekend of riding under a canopy of spectacular fall foliage.
Join us at the inaugural Bicycle Times Adventure Fest at Lake Raystown Resort in Entriken, Pennsylvania, the weekend of October 9-11, 2015.
At Adventure Fest, you choose your own adventure and ride your own pace. All routes will be signed and mapped. Just grab your crew, a map and cue sheet and hit the road. All rides will have aid stations and sag support should you need it. Otherwise, start when you want, ride your pace and finish when you want.
Here’s just a sampling of your ride options, all of which meander through beautiful countryside on pristine secondary roads. Mixed surface rides traverse everything from smooth, car-less double track to mountainous gravel roads.

Expo and Demo
Through an expansive Demo area, our industry partners will be offering test rides on the latest and greatest bicycles and gear, as well as showing off new technology. We’ll even have kayak and stand up paddle board demos, too.
But, Adventure Fest is about more than just riding. Friday and Saturday nights will be capped off with entertainment and free adult beverages for those 21 years of age and over. Adventure Fest isn’t just for adults; we’ll have activities for kids of all ages. Admission is free for those under 18 years of age.
Adult registration for the Adventure Fest weekend is $60. Register before August 1 and we’ll give you the early-bird rate of $50. Registration is free for those under the age of 18.
