Join us for the annual Lake McMurtry Chili Bike on Feb. 5th, 2023. Choose your own adventure and ride one trail or complete all 35 miles of trails for the ultimate Chili Bike challenge. As an alternative, there is also a 30 mile gravel ride option.
Ride snacks and drink refills will be provided at halfway locations for both events.
Back by popular demand is the traditional chili potluck. We are very excited to bring back this homestyle family reunion of sorts! Many styles of chili will be provided by our local community, but please feel welcome to bring chili toppings, bread, crackers, desserts or other sides to contribute.
Check-in is at the west side pavilion from 8am-9am with a mass start at 9am. Feel free to start your ride whenever! Post ride hang times will also be hosted at the west side pavilion and will include food, beverages, firepits, and music. Please feel free to bring family and friends for the after party!
Day of registration will be available at the west side pavilion and on-line. Please invite your friends and join us for a rad day of trails and fun!
All proceeds go towards continued trail maintenance efforts and improvement and enhancement of the park . With your help, Lake McMurtry Friends will continue to make efforts to refurbish and add to our 25 year old 35-mile multi-use trail system and to creating a welcoming and inclusive space that promotes positive health outcomes physically, socially, and mentally for everyone. Please follow along for updates, communication, and sneak peaks on instagram @chili.bike and Facebook
