With February highs in the mid-60s, lows in the mid-30s, and a good chance of sunshine, Big Bend offers a perfect winter climate for mountain biking the region’s scenic terrain. February 11-13, 2016, the annual Chihuahuan Desert Bike Fest makes the most of the season—and draws several hundred riders—with organized rides at Big Bend Ranch State Park, Big Bend National Park, and Lajitas Resort. The outings range in difficulty and length from kids’ rides to a 54-mile venture into the state park. Nightly dinners and socials round out the weekend.
