Exciting news. Not even open yet, Shepherd Mountain Bike Park will host its first BME Race on May 2, 2021. This is a testament to the enthusiasm leaders in the mountain biking community have for this park.
Rushing To Get Everything Done
As you can imagine, there's a lot to do just to get the park finished and open. On top of that we're having to prepare for the race. Fortunately, Big Mountain Enduro, the race owner, will be doing most of the heavy lifting with race preparation.
The race will have approximately 350 racers. On Friday and Saturday they will practice on the course in anticipation of the race on Sunday. Saturday evening will be a big block party in downtown Ironton, with music and more! We hope race spectators will be there on Saturday to help celebrate the event!
Preparing for everything requires many people. As with other mountain biking initiatives in other areas, much of the work gets accomplished by local folks willing to contribute their time. So, if you have the time and desire to help out, go to http://arcadiavalleychamber.com/helpout and register as a volunteer.
We will welcome you with open arms!!
