The challenge: 50 miles for 50 years. Are you ready? Registration for the Bays Mountain Bike Rally is now open! Bays Mountain Park is partnering with All Trails Cycling for this 50th Anniversary event, sponsored by BB&T/Suntrust (now Truist Bank).
On Saturday, October 2, head up the mountain and hit the trails for a mountain biking event for all ages and skill levels. Looking to just have some fun with the family? Register for the guided group fun ride, which begins at 8:30 a.m. and travels four miles route on a non-technical forest road. If you’re up for a challenge, assemble your four-person team for the timed “50ish” mile relay at 10 a.m. The relay course will include a good mix of singletrack with some technical sections for the experienced rider.
Local bike shops and SORBA Tri-Cities will be on site for an expo-type experience, as well as food trucks to grab a bite to eat after the big race. Spectators are welcome!
Registration for either ride is $25 per adult, $15 for ages 13 to 18 and free for children 12 and under. All ride participants will receive an event t-shirt! For the relay race, top finishers will be recognized and every team that finishes will receive a BMP 50th Anniversary souvenir to take home.
The pre-registration deadline for the Bays Mountain Bike Rally is September 25. To sign up to ride, please visit bikereg.com/bays-mountain-bike-rally.
