The History of the EB
The idea for the annual Enchilada Buffet Ride started with a simple blog post in 2008 by one Austin Mountain Biker with the extreme urge to ride all the Parks in Austin in one day. The entire post from the Bike Mojo Forum site is below:
It's been on the backburner for almost 2 years now. Last year we went as far as planning it and it fizzled out. This year I'm setting a day and am going to show up. If I am by myself then so be it. I've wanted to attempt this ride for a long time.
What is the Enchilada Buffet? It will be a self supported ride taking in a sampling of many of the trails in Austin. The following is a very brief description of where I and hopefully others will ride:
Hopefully there will be some interest, otherwise I'm bringing my I-pod. Let me know if you have any questions. Start training...NOW!
On a chilly October 4th Morning a handful a riders showed up and ate all the Mountain Bike Parks they could. Some finished the route some didn't... but the annual grass roots ride was born.
The EB challenge attracts more riders each year and we hope 2011 will be no different.
It's a great way to get a taste or a mouthful of all the Mountain Bike parks in Austin and also a great day in the saddle!
So if you like to bike and awesome people... get your bike and camelback/bottles ready and come RIDE!!
