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.  Bring the family for a day of fun and try the children's riding obstacle course.

This celebrated mountain bike race features five divisions:

  • Beginner
  • Pro
  • Expert
  • Sport
  • Single Speed

The Beginner course is a 15 mile loop, all others ride the full 30 mile Road Apple Rally course.  Both courses feature the whoops, where you spend more time in the air then on the ground!  Course terrain also includes short climbs, flats, sandy arroyos and sharp corners. 


Entry fee is $45 and late registration is $60.  Call 505-599-1197 for dates. There is also a $10 fee for the race t-shirt and $10 fee for lunch if selected.  Register early to save, and please remember there is no registration on race day.
