The beautiful New River Gorge and ACE Adventure Resort combine to create some of the most scenic and hard-core mountain biking in the state. Come see why serious bikers (and some not so serious) make Southern West Virginia their destination for breathtaking trails. Join us for the 9th annual ACE New River Bike Fest!

Great trails, Great location
FREE Kids Race

As a bonus for families, the Bike Fest offers something for all ages. After the big kids hit the trail for the big ride, the little kids can participate in a race designed especially for them. Six to twelve-year-olds will navigate several short, youngster friendly loops against other aspiring racers of their own age. So bring the whole gang for the adult competition, the children's ride, or both!

The fun need not end at the conclusion of the race. Feel free to visit the Lost Paddle Bar and Grill to swap tall tales and enjoy a large variety of cold beverages. Dinner is also available at our full-service dining lodge.

As always, camping is free for all racers, but don't forget our more plush lodging opportunities. Cabins and chalets go quickly, so make reservations early! Be sure to look around and see what activities are available for you and your family and friends. Lakeside Dining, the Lost Paddle Bar & Grill, the adventure play park on the lake, and lots more!

ACE is proud to once again host the New River Bike Fest, and we hope you'll join us for another exciting weekend of competition, food, and fun. Good Luck!
