The weather will be gorgeous, so come out to help or just to see the action, & to all participants: welcome to our backyard, we love sharing it with you, Good Luck!
The Town of Carrabassett Valley invites you to participate in the annual Carrabassett Backcountry Cycle Challenge, a mountain bike endurance event. The event will offer two course options—one approximately 25 miles, the other an endurance 60 mile ride. The courses will cover a great mix of backcountry mountain bike terrain winding through the beautiful, unspoiled forests and mountains of Carrabassett Valley and its surrounding communities, consisting of technical single track, double track and dirt roads, with steep climbs and exciting down hills. Your participation will support Carrabassett Region NEMBA trail maintenance and development, and the town of Carrabassett Valley mountain bike race fund for future events.
Mountain biking is one of the most exciting developments in the Maine High Peaks Region and it’s TAKING OFF! Based at the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center, the area’s trail network extends for miles in all directions and offers riding for all abilities. All trails are designed and constructed with great care and Carrabassett Valley is poised to become New England’s premier mountain bike destination. Bob Ash talks about bikes and the importance of having a local bike shop to service the needs of visitors.
We caught up with the Carrabassett Valley Trail Builders to get an update on what’s been done this summer. The mountain bike trails continue to impress year after year. The guys are doing world class work. Huge thanks go out to the town of Carrabassett Valley and the Carrabassett Region chapter of the New England Mountain Bike association for making this trail creation possible. There’s something for every one out there so get up here and ride the trails! [Read more…]
