This is the first time that the Mendocino Woodlands State Park has ever allowed a mountain bike race on their property! THE ROUTE IS FANTASTIC!
It’s about 10 miles per lap with roughly 1800 feet of vertical per lap. Two ups, two downs. The climbs are littered with passing areas and there is one choice of short/steep or shallow/longer for you each lap as well. The downhills are like bobsled runs. We are grooming, pruning and manicuring the trails between now and race day. Buff, smooth and fast. If you’ve never raced singletrack before, this is a great route to jump into it on. If you are superpro you can make it as terrifying as you like, simply by going faster. NOTE: 810mm bars not recommended.

- 9:00 AM - First-timers / Novice / Tandems (one lap)

It’s all singletrack. It’s all sweet. Best bike choice: lightweight hardtail. Trail surface is packed loam with occasional roots. No rocks.
