~ The Breakdown isn't a race. We don't keep track of your mileage and we don't care how little or how much you ride. We simply give you a "suggested" route to explore and you choose how far you want to go. Our routes can take you up to 100 miles WITHOUT REPEATING ANY TRAIL! The Breakdown is a celebration of mountain biking... with a little bluegrass thrown in for fun!
Now that you know a little more about the Breakdown - we hope to see many of you there!
