Bicycle Times Adventure Fest Presented by Trek: 18-Mile Experience Ride

BTAF 18-Mile Mixed Surface Teaser

This 18-mile mixed surface ride epitomizes the Adventure Fest experience. A lakeside fire road with gorgeous views rolls right out of Lake Raystown Resort, our home base for the weekend. Just shy of the 6-mile mark, the route turns to pavement for a mellow cruise through beautiful farmland as the route loops back to the Resort.

Bicycle Times Adventure Fest Presented by Trek: 38-Mile Mixed Surface Ride

BTAF 42-Mile Mixed Surface Teaser

We’re striving to offer something for everyone at Adventure Fest, no matter what style and length of ride you’re looking for. This 38-mile mixed surface ride is quite a bit more accessible than the 70-mile mixed surface ride we featured earlier. But, it’s still an adventure with 4,000 feet of total elevation gain.

Mixed surface rides traverse everything from graded gravel roads to snowmobile trails to forest roads and even a bit of pavement to link it all together. While a skilled rider will be able to complete these rides without issue on a skinny-tire road bike, a bike with 28 mm or larger tires will be more comfortable and less likely to flat.

Of course, Adventure Fest is about more than just riding. Plan to take your time and enjoy some of the beautiful terrain you’ll be passing through. Bring your friends and enjoy a relaxing weekend of riding amongst friends.
