Each October, mountain bikers meet in Farmington, New Mexico to compete in the annual Road Apple Rally! The Road Apple Rally is a favorite for professional and new riders and is celebrating 40 years of racing this year. The Road Apple Rally began in 1981 as a competition between horses and bicycles.  It has since become a bicycle only race and stands as the longest-running annual mountain bike race in the United States.  If you have any questions, please contact the Farmington Recreation Center at (505) 599-1184.
