The Ozark Off-Road Cyclists (OORC) and our sister branches are happy to bring you the 16th Annual Buffalo Headwaters Challenge Mountain Bike Festival from April 23rd through the 25th, 2021 in Red Star, Arkansas. Come celebrate mountain biking in the Arkansas Ozarks with your people. We will follow proper and suggested protocols regarding Covid-19 at the time of the event. Mask and social distancing will be likely. Lucky for us we will be outside!
Featuring the Upper Buffalo Mountain Bike Trail System, an IMBA EPIC, brand new downhill trails at the Buffalo Outdoor Center, and some of the best gravel roads in the state, the Buffalo Headwaters Challenge is a wintertime classic(taking place in April instead of January this year)!
We have several volunteer opportunities throughout the weekend.
All volunteers, riders, and non-riders will have to sign a waiver and check-in at registration to participate. From there you will receive information at the volunteer table regarding your shift time, meeting place, and shift captain.
You will receive an email from givepulse after the event asking to confirm your impact. Please respond to this email as tracking volunteer efforts are critical to organizations like the OORC.
Check out the list of opportunities and signup today. We’ll see you at the Headwaters!
Note: There is very little (none really) cell service on the event grounds so plan on an amazing weekend off the grid. Cell service can be found just a 5-minute drive away though so if it is critical to check-in with civilization you’ll be able to.
Also, no pets or smoking of any kind on event grounds. We are guests to the Headwaters community and have been asked to see that we adhere to the policies and rules put in place for everyone’s health and safety.
