Are you ready for a kick-ass, off-road trail run/mountain bike race? WE ARE!
As you head out tomorrow, we wanted to let you know about some construction:
There is construction on a bridge that leads to the trails so there is a detour that takes you around the reservoir. If you are coming from the Cleveland area follow these directions: http://goo.gl/maps/AIS2Q and if you are coming from the Akron area take this route: http://goo.gl/maps/tuF9E
Our sponsor, Mountain Road Cycles will be doing a skills clinic and bike demo at West Branch State Park this Saturday, August 11th at 9AM for anyone interested. They will also have a couple of demo bikes from Giant available to try as well. Here is the post directly from Mountain Road Cycles:
