Here Comes the Mammoth!

The Mammoth Is ON!

Hey Everyone!
Just a reminder that you all need to be at CyclovaXC on Saturday, April 15th at 8AM for the roll out of the 100 mile event (70 and 35 mile riders go out at 9AM).

Remember that the event is FREE but you do need a state trail pass for the Gandy Dancer section of the ride. These can be picked up at CyclovaXC on the day of the event. If you're a local rider, please stop by Cyclova to get your state trail pass prior to the day of the event. Trail passes are also available at trail heads and at the Polk County Visitor's center. We love to keep our local trails SILENT and your trail pass purchases demonstrate the positive economic impact of Cyclists! Thanks for coming, and be sure to spread the word about the great Gandy Dancer State Trail!

The forecast says a high of 66 with a chance of rain. Our event is ON, rain or shine. The security of our riders is our chief concern, but we'll only cancel or postpone if extremely adverse conditions arise. The forecast looks good with overnight rains that will actually make for a much better riding surface on the gravel sections.

Those of you who ordered T-Shirts will be able to pick them up on event morning.

Queue sheets will be distributed on event day. They are also included in the event mailer along with this event map. Further information on the courses in various file formats can be found here.

Bring some cash for your stop at the Cafe Wren.

Participants this year include:
Kelly O'Day, editor of Silent Sports Magazine
Dan Woll, author of North of Highway 8 and Further (he's also on the poster)
