The Brown County Breakdown is one of the largest and most popular mountain bike events in the Midwest, and it is the largest fund-raising event for the Hoosier Mountain Bike Association. Since 2005, the event has raised more than $85,000 for HMBA, and it brought in over $23,000 in 2011 alone. The Breakdown is an epic mountain bike ride on beautiful trails within one of the largest and best-preserved contiguous hardwood forests in the Midwest. Participants choose routes from 25-100 miles in length. It’s not a race. It’s a great ride in the woods with a few hundred of your closest friends! We have a full weekend of events planned, so be sure to mark your calendars for October 12-14, 2012.

The ride begins and ends at beautiful Brown County State Park in Nashville, Indiana. Bike magazine named Brown County one of the top 33 trails in North America in its 2009 Trails issue, and it was recently added to the 2011 class of IMBA “Epic” locations.

This family-friendly event is perfect for riders of all ages and skill levels. It features on-site camping, a full weekend of bike and product demos, live bluegrass music from local and nationally recognized artists, a huge hog roast after the event and two nights of complimentary beer from local brewing companies!

Web registration is available. Opens on 2012-06-01. Closes on 2012-10-10.


Cost: $85-$125
Course Description: There are five well-marked courses: the 25 mile Brown County IMBA Epic Route, a 45 mile route that adds a journey to the “hidden cabin” sag stop and back, a 65 mile route that adds the Indiana classic Nebo Ridge Trail and Combs Road, an 80 mile route that adds a small section of the Hickory Ridge trail system, and a monstrous 100 mile route that spans four counties and has 84 miles of trail.
