Ride Announcements

Maah Daah Hey 2022 is cancelled

Sorry all but the ride is cancelled for 2022. We only have 22 entries for LD/Endurance. The flooding in MT is also effecting river levels, currently the river is 4.5’ high. This would not be a safe level to cross. We have to cross the river in order to put the ride on. I guess this just wasn’t our year. Hope to be back in 2023. PS if you made reservations directly with Bar X please be sure to call and cancel. Thank you, Angie
