It’s a party with some bike riding included.

Have you ever wanted to party with 3500 of your closest biking buddies? Each February Epic Rides puts on the 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo just outside of Tucson, AZ, and for a weekend a small town is born in the Sonoran desert. It’s a gathering like no other. Riders travel from all over the US, and sometimes farther, to compete in one of the largest 24 hour races in the world. If you haven’t yet had a chance to enjoy this special event and experience “24 Hour Town”, we highly recommend it. Although you better act fast as registration for next years event is almost full.

Take a winter vacation and experience the awesomeness that is the 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo.

    I think the largest 24 hour mtb event in the world is “le trophée des crapauds” in Rozérieules, France. This year it was the 22th edition, it started in 1989, now it’s limited to 2000 racers, but there’s more than 20000 spectators each year.
