The rolling hills off of FM 1077 south of Bandera will be filled with excitement on Saturday, March 7, thanks to a mountain bike competition that will hit the trails.
The Bandera Bike Park, at 4324 FM 1077, is hosting an event known as the Banduro on Saturday, with top local mountain bike riders and a few national riders testing their skills in a race on the custom-built trails, said Steven Hyde, who owns the park with his wife Sharon.
Spectators are welcome to come out and watch the competition. They will be able to stake a spot along the course of the race to get an up-close view of the event.
A $10 admission fee will be charged.
Gates will open at 7:30 a.m. and the race will start at 9 a.m. Race officials said it should be completed at about 1 p.m.
The park is on 430 acres of lands, with 13 enduro trails of all skill levels, 12 miles of cross-country trails, six jump lines and a skills course.
More biking features are planned at the venue.
Steve Hyde calls the enduro trails the best in the state.
