Thanks to Rocky for the heads up on a new late season MTB race festival for those of you in far northern Cali (specifically Arcata/Eureka):
Mark your calendars for Halloween weekend, Oct. 30 and 31, 2010. The ghosts and goblins will spook us all for the Race for the Ridge Festival in the Arcata Community Forest.
Race for the Ridge Trail Festival is a two day fund raising event supporting new trails in Arcata Community Forest. The long range goal is to join Sunny Brae Forest to West End road through a series of connected trails. The festival will feature a cross country mountain bike race, short track mountain bike races, Super D mountain bike race, kids bike races, a 5k running race, family fun ride, tricks, treats, ghosts, goblins, food, music, entertainment, and maybe special guest appearances from Ichabod Crane and the Headless Bikeman.
Funds from the event will support the City of Arcata’s Ridge Trail Project, a hiking, biking and equestrian trail from Sunny Brea to West End Road.
