Shenandoah Mountain Bike Festival
October 7 - October 9
The Shenandoah Mountain Bike Festival originated in 1997 and has always been and remains a volunteer-run event. The Festival is the largest fundraiser for the Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition (SVBC) proceeds from the Festival help the Coalition fulfill our mission to Build Better Communities in the Valley. The Festival is held at the beautiful Stokesville Campground on the edge of the George Washington National Forest
An important component of the Festival is giving back to the trails of the National Forest. We will hold a SINGLE trail work session on Saturday. We hope you will join us for the great riding, trail care, friendships, and fall foliage.
Current members of the Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition receive a discount on their festival registration. All festival attendees must register, even if you do not plan to ride bicycles. The Stokesville Campground is open ONLY for our registered festival guests on Columbus Day Weekend. There will be NO REFUNDS. Proceeds benefit the Coalition.
