2016 Chihuahuan Desert Bike Fest in Big Bend Ranch State Park, TX February 17, 2016 adventurex2wheels Leave a comment Getting ready for another great day of mountain biking with Brad. 85 & sunny all 3 days! The gang at the bunkhouse @Sauceda Ranger station. Riders from all over the US, great group sharing riding & life stories. Boathouse bar & grill, great burgers and plenty or local characters to spend time with. Ghostown, Terlingua, interesting place and people. be sure to visit if you’re down there Driving back from Big Bend Fest, be sure to stop in Alpine and grab grub at “The Smoking Cuban” food truck. Great food and plenty to watch. Watch out for the cactus! Chihuahuan Bike Fest home base Sunset at Sauceda Ranger Station Ghostown above ground cemetery Taking a break with Jiri, spent the entire day chasing this guy back to Lajitas. Sleeping area in the Sauceda bunkhouse, great night with a fun group of riders. Walking up a crazy steep hill on the ride back from Sauceda View of the valley We rode the really fun airport loop on day 3. Smooth, rolling hills in the “fun valley”, great day. Taking a break on the ride to Sauceda Ranger Station. 32 miles of rocks, climbs and sand. The few minutes spent in the shade felt great. 10 miles in to day one & snapped my chain. thank you Paul for your help! Paul was a Bike Fest staff and the chain repair lasted all weekend, really happy for Paul.
