Adventure Subaru and The Buffalo Headwaters Challenge Partner Up for One Wild Ride


A one-of-a-kind, unforgettable 3-day experience, the Buffalo Headwaters Challenge (#BHWC19) is a wicked awesome mountain bike ride that courses through the Ozark Mountains with available camping areas for overnight stays. And for 2019, we here at adventure-loving Adventure Subaru are proud to be a sponsor of this epic Ozark bike ride! Beginning just over a decade ago, the Buffalo Headwaters Challenge consists of trails created by local loggers in an effort to make crossing the mountains an easier feat. However, when the logging industry died out, the trails were transformed into official bike trails by the United States Forest Service. And now, the Buffalo Headwaters Challenge has plenty of room to grow! In order to participate in The Buffalo Headwaters Challenge, you must be a member of Ozark Off Road Cyclists -- but becoming a member is easy and worth it.

The Buffalo Headwaters Challenge encourages you to choose your own adventure by offering a 17-mile, a 26-mile, and a 40-mile ride that begins on the Upper Buffalo Mountain Bike Trail. Although the Buffalo Headwaters Challenge is not a race, it most certainly lives up to its namesake “challenge.” Because of this, it is strongly recommended that only riders at an intermediate level or up should attempt the Buffalo Headwaters Challenge, as the trails are rather remote and often cut through cliffs and forests. Riders will also encounter several streams and smaller rivers that will require them to carry their bikes, and several of the trails feature incredibly steep inclines. Thankfully bike riders will find food, water, and entertainment to lift their spirits at each breakpoint along the way. 2019 marks the 14th year of the Buffalo Headwaters Challenge and we expect over 500 riders to take on this wintery, epic mountain bike event!
