Are you ready for the most fun since you took off your training wheels? Can you ride a bike? Can you shoot a pistol? Do you want to ride a bike and shoot a pistol? If yes, then you're at the right place... the place for a bike-N-shoot race.

First Saturday of every February, April, June, August, October, and December

This timed competition will involve 3 laps on a mountain bicycle, of approximately 2.5 miles each, on rolling prairie terrain.

Each lap to be followed by five shots from a pistol at steel targets approximately 6” dia from a distance of 20 yards.

Each miss will accrue a short penalty lap.

Men' s (expert and amateur), Women's, and Youth classes. *

Entry fee for contestants is $10, Spectators are $5/carload.


Notes:

* Very little in the way of facilities is available. Bring water. Dress appropriately for the weather.
* Any pistol may be used, as long as it fires PISTOL caliber ammunition, and is equipped with only open sights.
* After shooting, your support crew – if any – is permitted to reload for you.
X Classes dependant on attendance.
* Pistols may be carried during the riding phase, or left in the shooting area. Carried guns must be unloaded.
* Eye and ear protection required while shooting. Helmet required while riding.
* All shots will be fired from a standing position.
X The prairie contains cactus and goatheads. It is NOT smooth. Prepare accordingly.

move it to the SF bay area and I'll be there :)
once I find out if my knee is up for biking, I think I'm going to try and host a similar contest in the area.

I'm too far from the event, but this looks like one of the coolest things ever.

You need a name like "Biathalon".

This would probably make a good winter biathlon, down in Vegas. When I was there, Summer was just too hot for almost anything. There's some good venue areas SE of town toward the Sunrise racetrack or Vegas Wash, too.
