South Texas is blessed to have year-round riding weather. Accordingly, STORM hosts events and activities that are scheduled throughout the year. Together with our FaceBook page, this calendar will keep you up to date on all club rides, events and gatherings. Below the calendar is a listing of our more popular activities.
Hope to see you on the trails!
Think you got the legs for this one? Endurance is the name of the game as participants compete to finish two full laps of Flat Rock Ranch (Upper and Lower loops X2) for 56 miles of sweet singletrack goodness. If 56 miles is too much, we also have half-distance categories as well. This is the final race of the 2017 Hill Country Bicycle Works Texas Mountain Bike Marathon State Championship Series.
The fourth stop of the 2017 SharpeVision Lasik Texas Mountain Bike Racing Association's XC State Championship Series comes to our backyard as STORM hosts its 18th Annual edition of the Challenge. This is the largest mountain bike race in the San Antonio area with over 500 racers competing in 41 different age, gender and experience-based classes.
Race. Race. Race. Is that all STORM does? Absolutely not! To be sure, we do put on the best mountain bike races in the area. But the truth is, only a small minority of us ever actually competes. Conversely, if casually riding your bike, followed up with the enjoyment of a cold drink and some good eats is more your style, than this free event series is for you! And as a way to thank all our volunteers, STORM provides food for the grill and attendees are encouraged to bring their own beverages and sides.
Unfortunately, the trails don't maintain themselves and our resource-strapped public parks departments aren't able to maintain much if any of their natural surface trails either. Fortunately, following IMBA guidelines, STORM has the tools, training and permission from the appropriate land managers to keep our trails enjoyable for all park users. Watch the calendar above for the next work day or contact our Trail Stewards to schedule a work day on your favorite trail.
Time to get your learn on. Whether it be practical skills clinics, mountain bike maintenance clincs or trail building clinics, the doctor is in!
Want to get involved? Come learn what's coming to a trail nearest you and help shape the future of San Antonio mountain biking! STORM meets on the first Monday of every month at 7PM. Meeting locations change from month to month so check the calendar above or visit our FaceBook page for details.
