Northwoods announces Spring and Summer Events
Northwoods Trails announces races and rides for Spring and Summer. Events will include group rides for mountain bikers of all skill levels and competitive events for runners and mountain bikers alike.
The ongoing Full Moon Ride series takes place on each month's Full Moon. Groups are led by the Northwoods team for casual, fun paced rides through the trail system. Mountain Bikers can expect 5 mile rides lasting 60 to 90 minutes long. Participants should ride with headlights, depending on the time of the sunset. Check event listings for ride times and trailhead locations.
New for 2021, The Summer Fun Series includes 4 casually competitive events during the months of May, June and July. The series benefits the Trail Advocacy Coalition of the Ouachitas (TACO) who assist in maintaining the 26 miles of trail in the Northwoods. Events include a time trial race, looped XC race, duathlon, and a 6 hour mountain bike race. Registration for the Summer Fun Series is open now. https://www.bikereg.com/taco-summer-fun-series
