About the Brown County Epic MTB Festival

Experience the best mountain biking in the Midwest at the Big Woods Brown County Epic Mountain Bike Festival, October 12-14, 2018.  Located in Brown County, Indiana the 2018 Mountain Bike Festival and Epic Ride will offer tons of flowing single track during prime Autumn Season.  The Epic Rides with SAG support will take place on Saturday, October 12.  Routes of 25 -100 miles will be mapped and signed for participants.  This is not a race, just a ride in the woods with friends and after a long day of riding, you’ll roll into camp with a huge dinner and party to celebrate your achievements.  Sleep in Sunday and take an easy ride or demo some new bikes.


Come for the weekend and experience an impressive array of cycling inspired events and resources.  The festival will have something for everyone; camping, bike demos, beer garden, group rides, clinics, games, raffles, live music, post ride BBQ, and food by Big Woods throughout the weekend for purchase.

And did we mention all proceeds benefit HMBA, building new trails every year!
