Cyclefest is arguably the best and most scenic Bike Tour in the state of Texas with beautiful vistas, easy novice routes and challenging hills. Cyclefest is a “must do” for every cyclist.
The annual Cyclefest Bike Tour and Hill Climb is held in the scenic “Texas Alps” of West Texas in Fort Davis, Texas. The Tour provides varying distance routes from 27, 55 and 76 miles.
Save the dates: Friday Sept 15 – RUSA 100K and 200K brevet
Saturday Sept 16 – Cyclefest Tour! And party at the finish line
Sunday Sept 17 – The infamous Mt Locke Hill Climb. Post ride swim at Balmorhea Springs.
The event is staged at the historic Prude Ranch in Fort Davis and is held the Third Weekend of September.

Watch this video. While it shows the scenery and is lovely, there are a couple examples of how not to ride. PBBA DOES NOT endorse the risky / unsafe riding shown in the video. The rider was very lucky that there was no uphill traffic coming around the blind turn when he was across the yellow lines. Because he was drafting behind the van his vision was blocked and he could not anticipate the van slowing. Because of his speed, he was basically forced into going around the van in a no passing zone. This riding is not typical of Cyclefest riders.
