Big Pig Bike Festival


This year's Big Pig Mountain Biking Festival will take place from July 20-21, 2019

Come one, come all!!! It really doesn't matter how old you are, what your style of riding, or how serious you are about mountain biking, the Big Pig is a friendly fun weekend of fat tire festivities.

Fun for the whole family starts with shuttles Friday night. Once again this year the cross-country events will go on Saturday, with kids events on Saturday night. The downhill and 4X go on Sunday. And our new event, the Boer Mountain Sounder encourages family fun on all our trails all weekend long!

What is the "Boer Mountain Sounder"?

This is our exciting new event for people who are just looking to ride all of our amazing trails without the element of competing for the best times. With this you'll get a Passport card that lists all of our trails. When you've ridden a trail you mark it off on your passport. For each trail ridden you'll get an additional draw for the prizes. Great for individuals or families wanting to get out and ride!

What is the "HUFF and PUFF 40km x-c"?

For the past few years we have added a cross-country "taste-tester" for mountain bikers with a "discriminating palette." This "ultimate 40 km loop" begins by climbing up Razorback, an 18 km all-mountain trail, circling around on the new Star Lake trail, before "rewarding" you with thrilling descents (and even more climbs) on Pigasus. Guaranteed to satisfy!

What is "Dante's Enduro"

The Enduro is the racer's complement to the more family friendly Wheelay and consists of squeezing as many laps of the 10 km loop as you can before your legs and lungs scream "No mas" or 3 o'clock, whichever comes first. Last year's winning total was a lot. The gauntlet is down.

What is the “WILBUR’S WHEELAY”?

This is a cross-country race, with an emphasis on fun! Teams of all ages are encouraged to participate. There is no limit to the number of team members that ride the 5 km race course. The winning team rides the most loops (in the shortest time) in the 3 hour time limit!
