Join us for over 50 miles of the sweetest, award-winning, single track as we celebrate 11 years of award winning trails. Fully supported, self guided ride with sag stops, bathrooms, lunch, safety patrollers, and a custom map. Registration gets you the event shirt and pint glass. This is the weekend to ride Santos when the biggest Bike Expo in the south is rockin' the newest bikes and gear.
Some people call it the best weekend of the year, we just call it Dirt Fest. With thirty-six miles of flow trails, more demo bikes than we can count (we tried), primitive camping, good beer, great friends and one beautiful lake if you don't come you're simply missing out. With new additions like the bike park, second expo area, kids fun zone and more food vendors, we think this will be the best year yet! Sign up and come join the fun at the lake this May.
Dirt Rag has chosen Big Bear as the location of their second Dirt Fest for a host of reasons, including technical and fun trails, scenic surroundings, a great event venue, and friendly committed staff.
Dirt Rag’s Quality Manager, Karl Rosengarth, says it best. “Over the years, the team at Big Bear has invested a lot of time, effort and expense to make the venue perfectly suited to host our ‘gathering of the tribe.’ With miles of trails, a performance stage, large pavilion, community bonfire ring, potable water, hot showers and plenty of flat-ground camping, Big Bear has all the ingredients required to make Dirt Fest West Virginia a rousing success.”
The trails at Big Bear are very different than what you’ll find at the Allegrippis Trails, the location of Dirt Fest PA. While the Allegrippis is all about flow, Big Bear features more technical terrain. Big rock features, most notably “The Crack” (which is literally a crack in a huge rock through which the trail cuts), offer a challenge. But there are plenty of more mellow trails for beginners as well.
