Deer Fly Chase ~ 5th Annual

Do not miss the Deer Fly Chase on SATURDAY OCTOBER 3rd.  So mark your calendars and plan to race (or volunteer)!!

The course will be as epic as ever — outstanding terrain, a mix of gravel roads, ski trails and the best singletrack around (new singletrack every year, that’s our promise to you).

The open class has two race distances: Long course, 28 miles , Short course, 17 miles.
Juniors choose from: High School race, 17 miles, Middle School race, 9 miles.  And discounted entry fee of just $10!!

For those familiar with the area, key route highlights are:  Rolling paced start on blacktop from Dog Island; the race will start with the Rattlesnake hill equalizer climb; rolling dirt roads offer plenty of fast riding; balanced with technical singletrack and ski trails for passing; a long gravel climb on Deer Fly Trail and even more sweet singletrack, will further separate the contenders (long course racers);  fast open ski trail finish near Dog Island.
Other unbelievable highlights include: $25 pre-registration, sponsored food and Fat Tire beer to all finishers (ages 21+), prizes and awards to top finishers.

Sponsors include: New Belgium Brewing/Park Ridge Distributing, Spring Street Sports, WI Scale, Nature’s Pharmacy, Lindsley Chiropractic, Gordy’s County Market

IMBA Trail Care Crew

The Trail has been started and a GREAT 3 day event was held.

Here is the Event recap from Lani & Jordan

 

With the continued growth of the sport of mountain biking, trails have the potentail to become greater community assets for many reasons. Trails have the potential to bring new faces to town from not only a tourism standpoint but also from a relocation one. Mountain bikers and other trail based recreationist’s value trail access as an important component to a housing purchase. In Rice Lake, WI this past weekend we were greeted by many enthusiastic residents and community officials interested in local trail development. “I moved back here because of the potential access the area provides.” Explained local rider, “Our house is located a few minutes away from the county forest and I have been walking around out there just dreaming of the trails we could build out there.”

CORBA comes to Barron County

Starting this May ~ A New Mountain Bike/Running Trail system will begin construction in the Rice Lake Area. CORBA (Chippewa Off Road Bike Assoc.) http://chippewaoffroad.org/ will begin construction along with Local Riders & Runners to create Barron Counties First Single Track trail system. A number of Local folks have been working on this over the past few years and in 2014 Great conversations began with CORBA. After just over a year of efforts this is now coming to fruition. This new trail system will be located on the Pipestone Quarry Property east of Rice Lake. The initial layout calls for 3 loops totaling approx. 10 miles of singletrack. Stay tuned for more info coming soon.
