    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.

    [​IMG]



    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.


    Entries accepted up to the start of the event. Awards for the winners, men’s and women’s classes.

    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.
