Road Apple Rally


SAVE THE DATE: October 2 & 3, 2021

Established in 1981, the Road Apple Rally - a.k.a. the longest continually run mountain bike race in America - celebrated its 40th year in 2020 with a virtual race (due to the pandemic). 

In 1981 mountain bikes hadn't even been invented yet, but we were pioneering the sport here in Farmington, New Mexico.

We're hoping and planning to be back in-person in 2021 so save the date!

Track Information

The Road Apple Rally track is located in the BLM Glade Run Recreation Area, featuring 19,000 acres of slick rock, rolling terrain, and sandy arroyos.

The Road Apple Rally track is great for riders of all abilities. Offering both a 30-mile and 15-mile loop this single-track trail is not overly technical. Experienced riders love the speed they can get (upwards of 15-miles per hour!) and beginners are able to successfully tackle it.
