200-plus Bikers Register for Opening Day of Bike Fest 2013

LAJITAS—A group of mountain bikers carefully navigates a stretch of Fresno Creek, while on the Rock House Tour ride, one of several menu choices on Day 1 of the third-annual Chihuahuan Desert Bike Fest. The event, which features challenging mountain bike rides guided by park staff and trained volunteers, continues through Saturday at Big Bend Ranch State Park, Big Bend National Park and the Lajitas Trail System, all located in the rugged mountains of far Southwest Texas.

The Rock House Tour is a new feature for Bike Fest, and is a 25-mile trek past 100-plus-year-old rock home relics and scenic canyonlands inside Big Bend Ranch State Park. Most rides of Bike Fest are geared toward riders with advanced skills, such as the 58-mile Epic Ride.

For ride schedules or more information, visit, or call (432) 358-4444.
