2008 Bidwell Bump

The Cal State Chico Cycling Club has announced the 2008 Bidwell Bump will be held on September 14, 2008. The races will be held in Upper Bidwell Park just east of Chico, CA.

The Bump will consist of an XC Ride at 10am, followed with a Super-D type (1 minute gaps, but it is LONG) downhill starting at 2pm, with a BBQ at Hooker Oak.

Some notes about the races:
  • There will be no Beginner class in the Super-D, because Guardians is not a beginner friendly trail; It is full of sharp rocks and poisonous snakes and places to fall off and break a clavicle and have to get airlifted out and very scary things! But the Expert and Sport classes should be fine, with waivers!
  • This is a long, hot, tough, rocky race so bring lots of water (at least 100oz for Sport/Expert XC riders), some spare tubes and plenty of food.
A donation to the CSUC Cycling Club will be requested for racing:
  • XC or Super-D: $20
  • XC and Super-D: $30
  • BBQ: $5! extra
This is a fundraiser race to help send Chico State riders to the Collegiate Mountain Bike Nationals in late October.
