U Lazy S Ranch Tour
March 21- 25, 2019 or April 4 - 8, 2019
Near Post, Texas, there lies a piece of private land that has some of the best trails the state has to offer. These trails aren't open to the public, and this is your chance to have the property to yourself, along with Russ and Cole and three other riders. The terrain you will experience ranges from tight cedar sections to deep canyon riding, and you will be challenged every day on the bike.
Here's what to expect:
The U Lazy S Ranch used to host the Post Enduro Association and held many national enduros from 1970 until the club left in the early 1990s. The property has been in the family for over 100 years and offers some of the most unique riding in the state of Texas. If you like dry dirt and sharp elevation changes, you will be right at home on the terrain. You can count on three days of riding with a variety of terrain and difficulty. All of the extreme terrain that is offered is easy to access and will have alternate routes.
