Racing

Racing is a fun option for riders to challenge themselves and meet more bike friends. There are multiple opportunities throughout the summer and fall for riders to participate in races. We camp near many of the races from Friday through Sunday. Being near the venue allows the whole family to ride the trails and get to know the rest of the team! Details about camping for each event are listed under the events section of our Trailblazers FB page.
