Description
Bent Wheel Bash in Abilene is coming up soon. We hope everyone is making plans to travel out to our neck of the woods! Come on out early if you can and check out the Specialized Demo Van. They will be set up at the venue on Saturday, April 2, from noon to 5 pm. They have a variety of bikes on their van that you will be able to test out. Come on out and see what they have to offer!  This year, our food vendor will be set up on Saturday from 12-2 and on Sunday from 10:30-2. We are excited to have one of our local food trucks, The Toasted Traveler, come out for the event. You can check them out at http://www.abilenefoodtruck.com. 

Camping and RV spots are available – no reservations necessary. There are no hookups, but generators are allowed and showers are available. Propane grills are fine, but the Police Academy asks that there be no open fires. For those who haven’t been to Bent Wheel Bash before, Buck Creek Trails is right next to our local police academy, and the academy allows us to use their land and buildings for our start/finish, expo, and camping area.

Of course, there is always the question of land access fees. We know that Abilene is a bit further for most people to drive, so we try to keep fees down. The land use fee is $10 PER CAR (not per person), so pack everyone in and carpool if you can! We only charge once, so if you come out on Friday, that $10 fee covers the whole weekend. Camping spots are $20 per site for one night or $30 for both nights. So, if you drive out on Friday and camp both nights, the most you will pay in land use/camping fees for one car is $40. The nice part (if there can be a nice part about paying fees) is that all the proceeds from Bent Wheel Bash go to our local police department. If camping isn’t your thing, but you need to spend the night somewhere, here is a list of some hotels close to the trails. There is a rather large country music event going on the same weekend, so if you need a hotel, call soon. We hope to see a bunch of you in Abilene soon!
