2011 Twilight Mountain Bike Racing Series

Sorry that I'm a bit late on this but I'll post it up on the schedule today:

This is our summer bike program to engage the community in the outdoors, fitness, and healthy foods on Tuesdays.  Turn off the TV and put away the cell phone and video games and bring the family, camping chairs, cow bells, and have a great time with us at Twilight !

The Twilight series is a model from Carlos Perez, a bike enthusiast/promoter, founder of, and inspiration to the summer bike races at Howarth Park in Santa Rosa.

We welcome beginners, intermediate, and expert riders.  Medals will be awarded to 1-3 places of each category by age groups of under 18 y.o., 19-29 y.o., up to 50+ . Time results to be posted online. There’s a little tikes course for up to 6 y.o. and it’s free.  Goodie bag for little tikes too.

We have two new venues in Nevada County! We will be hosting a Twilight Series with eight races – four in Grass Valley at Condon Park and four on the Dascombe Trail System near the 5 Mile House in Nevada City.

Part 1 Condon Park:

June 21 / June 28 / July 5 / July 12

Located in Grass Valley, trails are at Condon Park and Lyman-Gilmore School property, nestled under pine and oak trees.  Each race date will be a different course.  This is a perfect venue for beginners just testing their skills.  Each race builds upon each other, a little more challenging and fun.


Part 2 Dascombe Trail System:

July 19 / July 26 / August 2 / August 9

Trails are on F.S. lands just a 10 minute drive from downtown Nevada City, just off HWY 20 and Conservation Road.  Each race date will be a different course.   Each race builds upon each other with more elevation gain, switchbacks, etc.

Entry fees: Kids under 6    : Free, Juniors 6 – 17  : $10, Adults 18 & up: $20
