NEGRIL, Jamaica -- The island's first single-track racing festival,
dubbed the Negril Fat Tire Festival, is scheduled for Feb. 9
Single-track mountain bike racing involves intense competition
because trails are wide enough for only one cyclist. The event will
include a street party with Jamaican dance hall, ska and reggae
music; a scavenger hunt, and a "cave rave," in which bikers of all
levels pedal along the Negril coast by moonlight to a cave filled
with music and more than 1,000 candles.
The highlight of the festival, hosted by the Jamaica Mountain
Bike Association, will be the cross-country Jamaican National
Championship Series Race.
