Cross Country racing returns to Pocahontas Trails

poca-trails-1

The old-school, East Coast riding that make the trails at Slatyfork famous more than two decades ago are back with an expanded race weekend at the Pocahontas Trails in West Virginia. The new, three-day format features a short track race, an XC race and an enduro August 22-24.

The weekend of racing showcases what the Slatyfork trails are all about: scenic singletrack, challenging rock gardens, 100-year-old railroad grades, spruce forests and spectacular vistas.

Mt. Tam Dirt Fondo adds second event

One of our favorite rides every year is the Mt. Tam Dirt Fondo that samples some of the sweet singletrack where mountain biking was born on Mt. Tamalpais in Marin County, California.

The original, 46-mile ride will still take place September 7, but this year the Marin County Bicycle Coalition has added a Summer Solstice Ride on June 29. You’ll get to ride with some of the legends of the sport, enjoy a tasty barbecue afterwards and get a free T-shirt. Proceeds from the Dirt Fondo supports MCBCs Off-Road Program, which works to expand trail opportunities for mountain biking while promoting good trail etiquette and environmental stewardship.
