About the Big Woods Brown County Epic

Registration for the 2021 Big Woods Brown County Mountain Bike Festival opens August 22! Unfortunately, due to COVID infection rates climbing in recent weeks we’ve made the decision to reduce the event down to a one day ride with a SAG stop at Crooked Creek Dam. No food or drinks will be provided, no live music, and no demo bikes. However, primitive camping and use of the pool house are still on the slate, and there will be a new trail to break in.

Experience the best mountain biking in the Midwest at the Big Woods Brown County Epic Mountain Bike Festival, October 8-10, 2021.  Located in Brown County, Indiana the 2021 Mountain Bike Festival and Epic Ride will offer tons of flowing single track during prime Autumn Season.  The Epic Ride with SAG support will take place on Saturday, October 9.  Multiple routes of varying length and difficulty will be mapped and signed for participants.  This is not a race, just a ride in the woods with friends. Sleep in Sunday and take an easy ride before breaking camp.

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

Registration to the Epic Mountain Bike Festival includes:

  • Unlimited good vibes for giving back to the local trail system!
  • Flagged, well marked trails
  • Sweepers and Bike Patrol trained in first-aid
  • Food, drinks, and support at all aid stations
  • Basic bike assistance at aid stations (free lube, tire pumping, etc.)
  • Swag bag with plenty of cool stuff including an event t-shirt
  • And don’t forget, all proceeds go to HMBA, which goes back to the trails you’re riding!
