Event is timed. No awards. Additional entry fee required for each event.
10k & 20k night fat bike races
This is the one chance per year to ride the well groomed ski trails at Hidden Valley. The course has a few punchy climbs and descents as it winds through the north woods. Same course as the ski tour so you could enter that to "test" the trail before you ride. The ride starts at dusk so a headlight is required on your bike or helmet or both. Helmet is required. Event is timed. No awards. 10k and 20k start together. Finish to food, bonfire and fun at the Hidden Valley chalet. The 10k will do 1lap and the 20k will do 2 laps. Must be 15 yo or riding with a parent or guardian.
