Here at BikeTown we couldn’t agree more. We love riding our bikes and want to help as many people as we can love riding their bikes, too.

Upcoming Events at Buck Creek Trails

There are a couple events just around the corner for those who like to ride off-road.

First, there will be a time trial at Buck Creek this Saturday, October 25. It will start at 4:00 pm. There is no fee to enter. Just come on out, see how you do on the trail, and have fun! There will be water and Gatorade provided for you. ***The start area will be different than usual!*** Instead of entering the trails at the normal entrance, keep driving on East Lake Road and take the next entrance on your right (north of Buck Creek Trails). This will take you into the police academy parking lot. They are letting us use the parking lot for this time trial as well as for the next event. The time trial will start from their parking area - not from where past time trials have begun. This time trial will be about 7 miles long. We do have to be out of the parking area by 6, so you'll still have plenty of your Saturday night left after the time trial finishes. Come on out and give it a whirl!

Second, the West Texas Mountain Bike Series will have the Bent Wheel Bash at Buck Creek on Sunday, November 2. There are three different categories to race in: beginner, sport, and expert. Beginner men/women race 7 miles, sport men/women race 18 miles, and expert men/women race 27 miles. There is an entry fee of $15 for beginner, $25 for sport, and $30 for expert. Also, you have to have an ACA license to race. A one-day license can be purchased at registration for $10. Beginners 18 and under race free except for their license. Registration the day of the event will begin at 8 am and close 30 minutes prior to the event. Experts will race at 9:30 am. Sports will race at 9:35 am. Beginners will race at 9:40 am. There are awards for this event. The beginners will get medals 3 deep. The sports will get 33% payback 3 deep. The experts will get 100% payback 3 deep. We know there are a lot of you who ride Buck Creek. Come on out and see how you stack up against the competition!
