Road Apple Rally

SAVE THE DATE: October 2 & 3, 2021

Held annually since 1981, the Road Apple Rally is America’s longest continuously running mountain bike race! This single-track course includes 5, 15 and 30-mile loops in the Glade Run Recreation Area and is a fun and fast race for mountain bikers of all levels. The Rally got its name from early riders dodging “road apples” left behind by horses who also used the trail. 

The early October season in the Four Corners region of New Mexico is well known for its beautiful clear skies and perfect fall temperatures, making it an ideal getaway for avid cyclers and outdoor enthusiasts alike.  

The 2021 event is slated to take place Saturday, October 2 and Sunday, October 3 and represents a much-needed welcome back to celebrating the outdoor lifestyle. The Road Apple Rally will feature two days of competitive and recreational bike races, live music, food and an interactive sponsor village with entertainment and activities for everyone. 

Registration for the 41st Annual Road Apple Rally opens Thursday, July 1, 2021. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for event updates.
