Festival postponed to October 16-18

We have to roll with the changes that our current reality deals us.  We love the idea of seeing you walk in the shop with great stories about your rides.  We love raising our beers with you in honor of techy West Virginia trails. We love the energy of the trials and the quirkiness of the Hash.  The festival is the biggest fundraiser for our trail club, Blackwater Bicycle Association, and we really count on that money to do our business. The monies donated and great attendence of the festival sustain the club, but it also stokes our local riding community to keep riding and do the good work of  advocating for mountain bike trails. We also hope our Tucker County community benefits positively from our event and we would never want to threaten that relationship. So, we have decided to postpone the festival to OCTOBER 16-18 2020.  We don't know if it will be the exact same format as in years past, but we will adapt and flow with what needs to be done for the health, safetly and quality of life of our residents, guests and mountain bikers.  October weather is highly unpredictable, but after all this lockdown, won't that fresh air and mud with your friends feel awesome?

We still plan on selling our awesome t-shirt designed this year by local artist, Jen Iskow, and might also add other things to our store.  We still plan on doing fundraising for our club, especially, the Thumb project on Camp 70. 
 Keep tuned for updates and keep getting outside and following the guidelines for safety.
