8:30am Nine Mile Pond Short Track this is a non-competitive, for fun race determining the riders who can ride around Nine Mile Pond the most times in 35 minutes. Scott's Cycle and Sports may break down winners by ability and age and also by who raced with the most style for prizes. Last year we had so much fun we forgot who won and forgot about the prizes so this year if we stay focused we will double up the prizes from last year. Don't get too excited, the prizes are more like funny gifts but get pumped for a fun weird fast as you can peddle couple laps around the pond before we load up for the main event. Shuttle ride starting on Rough Fork Trail near Mottet campground. New for 2017 possible course improvements including technical trail features and possible jumps.
10:00am Shuttle Ride from Rough Fork trail near Mottet campground to Harris State Park (18 miles estimated distance). This is the featured ride of the weekend with start and finish descending 4,000 feet of elevation for an epic downhill ride. Scott's Cycle and Sports will be organizing shuttles to Mottet trailhead and picking up riders at Harris State Park and then returning them to Nine Mile Trail Head via Linton Mountain Road. Shuttle space is limited so reserve your spot early or organize your own transportation. Ride can be done without pick-up via Burnt Cabin trail or non-motorized service road to Linton Moutain road (estimated distances 35-45 miles)
