The Hurricane Mountain Bike Festival will be held in Hurricane, Utah from March 27-29, 2015. The fifth annual festival is promoted by Over the Edge Sports in Hurricane.

The festival will feature three days of rides, get togethers, food, mountain biking, and a pixie bike barrel racing contest. Friday night will feature a Dutch Oven dinner. On Saturday night, there will be a live band. And, there will be a Sunday morning breakfast.

Rides will be held on some of the best trails in Utah – Gooseberry Mesa, Guacamole, Little Creek Mesa, and more. There are rides for all ability levels. Rides are set out on a ride board, and riders choose whichever group they would like to go with. Rides are not organized per se.

Demo bikes will be available from Ibis, Rocky Mountain, Ellsworth, KTM, BMC, Salsa, and Borealis. If you want to try a new bike, the festival is the place to do it.

The festival is priced right at only $40 for three days, three meals, demo bikes, and more. When asked why it is so reasonably priced, organizer Quintin Morisette of Over the Edge Sports said, “The festival is inexpensive because we want you to come here and ride, and because we know you will be back.”
