We rode the cross-country / multi-use trails at Herrington Manor State Park in Oakland! There is no separate cost for park (or party) admission on the day of the ride.

Course Description
This is a fun race for all skill levels.. BEGINNER to ADVANCED.. at Herrington Manor State Park and Garrett State Forest

The course will be a 3 laps totaling about 10-12 miles; the weather will dictate the specific mix of wide cross-country trails and singletrack trails to be utilized.

If we have enough snow, the trail will be groomed for fat bikes – note tires must be 3.8″ to be considered “fat”

NOTE: Fat bikes are bikes with oversized tires, typically 3.8in or larger. If there’s snow, you’ll want a fat bike for sure. We’re not going to say you have to have a fat bike (especially, if we don’t have any snow on the ground) but don’t be mad at us if you can’t ride!

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • If your time is important to you, we will have timing available. Make sure you get to the front of the start line if you’re doing this for time.
  • We’ll have some awards for top finishers.
  • Since the rides are relatively short, you’ll be responsible for any food or drink while on the course. We’ll have some water and snacks available before and after.
  • We encourage everyone to come out and ride! This is just a fun time to get more people out on bikes! Give it a go!
  • “Snow or no, we’ll go!” We will ride if there is snow or not… we’ll make a decision closer to the ride date if it’s dicey.
  • Speaking of weather (or any other circumstances) there are no refunds. No matter what.
