About the Brown County Epic

Experience the best mountain biking in the Midwest at the Brown County Epic Mountain Bike Festival, October 7-9, 2016.  Located in Brown County, Indiana the 2016 Mountain Bike Festival and Epic Ride will offer tons of flowing single track during prime Autumn Season.  The Epic Ride Routes with SAG support will take place on Saturday, October 8.  Routes of 25, 50, 75, and 100 miles will be mapped and signed for participants.  This means after a long day of riding Saturday, you’ll roll into camp with a huge BBQ dinner and party to celebrate your achievements.  Sleep in Sunday and take an easy ride.

The trails at Brown County State Park exist because of Hoosier Mountain Bike Association (HMBA) and the many volunteers who contribute hundreds of hours each year, this event supports those efforts and more.  HMBA is building new trails each year and will again have some new trail open to ride for the Epic.  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, food trucks, beer garden, group rides, clinics, games, raffles, live music, post ride BBQ, and more.

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