Registration is OPEN for Plaid Goat 2018!

Registration for Plaid Goat MTB Fest 2018 is open! SIGN UP HERE!

General Admission // $10 per adult
NOTE: The first 500 General Admission tickets have been generously sponsored by Outside Bike & Ski! Admission tickets from #501 on will cost $10.

Admission includes access to: Plaid Goat’s Expo, Regional Craft Beer Tent, Group Rides, Secure Bike Parking, Kids Hub and more.

Admission for kids and youth is free [however, you’re welcome to give a donation to the Ride the Rockies Society to invest in the region’s trails for the future of your family’s riding!].

Add on: Demo Shuttle Wristband // $20 per day or $30 per weekend
NOTE: The first 50 Demo Shuttle Wristband “Add Ons” have also been generously sponsored by Outside Bike & Ski! Demo Shuttle Wristbands from #51 and on will cost the noted “Add On” prices.

By adding a Demo Shuttle Wristband to your admission, you’ll get to sample the sweetest bikes of the year back to back for an insanely low price AND be able to grab shuttles throughout the weekend! [just think of the average daily cost to rent a bike alone ($75-$150) – hello savings!]

Demos will run Sat and Sun, though bike brands will be onsite Fri evening so you can plan out your weekend of demo awesomeness. There will be a limited number of bikes available and as such, a limited number of Demo Shuttle Wristbands up for grabs.

A limited number of demo wristbands will be available for purchase, but capped to ensure the best ratio of bike to person availability.

Add on: Coaching Clinics
Coaching clinic info will be announced soon!

Thank you for supporting Plaid Goat by getting your passes in advance. People like you help us plan out the best program possible!
