2016 Buffalo Headwaters Challenge

Little known fact: I ride a mountain bike. Even more of a little known fact, I’m the secretary of the River Valley chapter of the Ozark Off-Road Cyclists. When our chapter president made mention that the “mother” chapter of the OORC needed volunteers at the annual Buffalo Headwaters Challenge, I jumped in with my camera.

The ride is headquartered at a fully self-sustaining school in Red Star, Arkansas. People camp the night before (some inside the school, some in pup tents and some in travel trailers,) and there’s plenty of donated beer, food and camaraderie to go around.

Camaraderie is really the overarching theme of the entire scene of the weekend: no grinding competition…all a celebration of the greatness of an IMBA epic trail in the beauty of the Ozark Mountains.

If you were part of the BHWC2016, you can find all the photos (maybe even one of you riding) HERE.  Enjoy!
