Just a little over three weeks left to get registered for the 7th Annual Brown County Breakdown! We have a huge weekend of events planned that you are NOT going to want to miss. We've already received registrations from AZ, CO, FL, GA, IA, IL, IN, KY, MI, MO, NC, NM, NY and OH. We have never had so many different states represented!
The fun begins on Friday, October 7 with the grand opening of the new mountain bike trails at Fort Benjamin Harrison State Park (Indpls, IN). Join HMBA leaders, local volunteers, families and friends at 11 a.m. for the opening ceremony followed by a casual group ride.
Following the ceremony, head south to Brown County State Park (www.browncountymountainbiking.com
) where the exclusive on-site camping at the Start/Finish will open at 3 p.m. There is still plenty of room for both Friday and Saturday night, but space is limited so be sure and sign-up online to guarantee a spot. Cost is $10 per person, per night for tent camping or $50 per RV. Children 10 and under camp free. All camping proceeds go directly to the State Park.
Be sure and stop by the bike and product demos from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, October 8 at the main mountain bike parking lot near the North Gate entrance.
~ Chat with HMBA leaders and long-time members and see what's next for HMBA. Renew your HMBA-IMBA membership or buy your favorite HMBA gear. Registered participant's who are current HMBA members receive a free commemorative pint glass (while supplies last)!
~ Visit the Friends of Brown County State Park booth and enter your name to win a free 2012 Indiana State Park pass.
~ Test ride bikes from Giant and Trek and look at the latest merchandise from SKS-Germany, Scott, Mavic and more.
~ Sign up for private mountain bike photo sessions with official event photographers, 2 Pedals Photography.
Don't forget the Family Fun Ride begins at 2 p.m. on Saturday. This fun, casual ride is open to anyone of all ages and mountain biking experience and is a great way to introduce friends and family to the joys of mountain biking. This ride is free and does not include t-shirt or hog roast ticket.
This year we are excited to have three local brewery sponsors including Big Woods Brewing Co. (Nashville, IN), Upland Brewing Co. (Bloomington, IN) and Flat12 Bierwerks (Indpls,IN). Complimentary beer is available to registered participants (21+, bring your ID) on both Friday and Saturday night. To top things off, we have an entire weekend of live bluegrass music planned from our local fiddlin' friends at Weed Patch Music to regional faves, New Old Cavalry and White Lightning Boys and special musical guest, Danny Barnes!
