NEW CASTLE RIDES AND REGGAE FESTIVAL

The New Castle Rides and Reggae Festival is a celebration of all things trails, mountain biking, music and community. Rides and Reggae includes a Saturday full of fun including live music from local and national reggae bands, MTB Races for all ability levels on the Colorow Trail Network, bike demo, beer garden, food and silent auction. Not into MTB racing, no problem. Just ride your bike up to VIX Ranch Park and link up with other like minded people for a group ride. Not into mountain biking at all, that's ok too. Head up and toss a blanket on the ground and take in the beautiful views from Castle Valley while listening to amazing live music.

Kids 12 and under FREE
