    So sad that I have to move that weekend and can't at least volunteer for this wonderful three day bluegrass/mountain bike festival! It is WELL worth any amount of traveling to reach

    There's RV camping in Brown County State Park. I'm sure there are other sites in Brown County, but we always camp (tent camping though) in the park itself when mtbing bike there. You can't beat the convenience or the setting.
    Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Continue to learn. Appreciate your friends. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.

    As Indy says, there are electric RV camping spots in the Brown County State Park campground. The campground is at the opposite end of the park from the area where ALL of the festivities are held. If you reserve early enough there is a parking lot at the event where RVs can park - though I don't think electricity is available. If the ground is dry enough there is also grass parking - but I think they try to not go that route.There is something very nice about being able to walk a few feet from the music or beer shelter to your tent or camper - and then you don't have to find parking the morning of the "little" mountain bike ride with hundreds of your best friends

    Hey folks... the Brown County Breakdown is just three weeks away... are you signed up yet!

    This is by far going to be our biggest and best Breakdown yet. *

    Did you know?
    ~ The Breakdown is the largest fund-raising event for the Hoosier Mountain Bike Association (http://www.hmba.org). *Both 2011 and 2012 saw more than $20,000 going to the organization. *This year we're on track to hit the $100K mark with total money raised since we started in '05!

    Did you know?
    ~ Just this year we were listed as one of the "BEST BIKE FESTS" by Outside Magazine. *Only 11 fests were on this list that included such other great events as Crankworx, Downieville Classic, Ride Sun Valley, Dirt Rag's Dirt Fest, Outerbike and more!

    Did you know?
    ~ That by registering for the Breakdown AND renewing/joining/extending your IMBA membership you can win a Scott bike with SRAM XX1 group valued at more than $6000! *Check out the website for all the info.

    Did you know?
    ~ 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!
