Iron Butt Association - Big As Texas Party and Ride


Date last revised: August 1, 2017


The 2017 Big As Texas Party is set! Once again, we are taking over a hotel Allen, Texas Thursday October 5th through Sunday Oct 8th. The advantage of the smaller hotel is that we should have most of the hotel to ourselves for the weekend.

On Friday morning, October 6th, there will be three rides:

The Big As Texas 1000 - a 1,000 mile ride around Texas using some of the best bonuses from the 2017 Iron Butt Rally

The Big As Texas Rally - want to find out what this rally thing is all about? Bonus hunting at its best! For Rally and Bun Burner GOLD riders, you will get the bonus list 72 hours in advance to easily plan your own special route.

For those not riding, on Friday tire kicking will take place at the hotel, we have a large room to socialize in this year. If you do a ride-in, we can also do check in Friday during the day).

Saturday is check in and tire kicking with fellow IBA friends

4 pm-ish - awards for riders finishing the 3 rides

5 pm-ish - dinner and presentations from fellow IBA members

Registration will open in soon - we are just waiting for the hotel to set up the reservation link.
