Marc Serota /

Lieutenant Billy Nungesser and Louisiana State Parks invites you to the inaugural Roller Coaster of Love Mountain Bike Festival at Bogue Chitto State Park this weekend, October 2-3, 2021. Hosted by the Northshore Off-Road Biking Association, the Roller Coaster of Love Mountain Bike Festival will include events for mountain bikers of all ages from a Funduro race, mountain bike riding instruction, and the Mega Zeph Mega Jam, mountain bike jump party featuring plenty of jumps and aerial stunts.


The main event of the Roller Ccoaster of Love Mountain Bike Festival starts Sunday morning with onsite registration at 8 a.m. and racing getting underway at 9 a.m. with 17 different categories of races open for registration. The races are the 7th stop in the Gulf South Regional Mountain Bike Series.


The new trails at Bogue Chitto State Park will draw mountain bike enthusiasts from throughout the southeast and further. Created through a collaboration with the Northshore Off-Road Biking Association (NORBA), the new mountain bike trails feature runs for all skill levels. Bikers can expect a stimulating ride no matter the intensity of the trail as they wind through the piney woods of Bogue Chitto State Park along the park’s natural elevation changes.
