Come and enjoy our Weekend of Adventure (June 7,8 and 9th). Free camping on Friday and Sat night. More information for our other events can be found on bikereg.com. On Friday night there will be a night time trial on mountain bikes as a fundraiser for HERA cancer foundation. Sat morning is our trail run followed by a 12 hour endurance mountain bike race. We also have a race called the Iron Monkey where you must race the night time trial, the trail run and a 6 hour mountain bike race. All these events take place at the private Granogue Estate of Mr. and Mrs. Irenee duPont without whose generosity we would not be able to donate $s to all the causes that we support.
4th Annual 10K (+/-) actual distance will be posted at event. Andrew Mein’s Excellent Adventure at Granogue. This weekend event is dedicated to the loving memory of our dear friend Andrew Mein. Andrew was a founder of the Wooden Wheels Mountain bike team, a stalwart in the cycling community, a loving husband, a superb trials rider, capable of amazing flatulence, a terrible bass player, an incredible mechanic, and a very good friend. Andrew was stuck by a car and killed in 1998 while commuting home from work on his favorite bike at the time, a steel fixed gear road bike. Andrew was a hipster 10 years before hipsters knew they were hipsters.
A few comments from our 2012 post race survey:
“The estate is beautiful. Course was tough, but fair. We came from Burlington County, New Jersey with 6 runners from our club, The Pineland Striders. Timing and organization was excellent. Results were posted on-line the next day.”
“Private estate I typically can’t run on but very similar to all Woodlawn trustees. Familiar. Like having all the mountain bikers around. Good vibe.”
“friendship and encouragement from complete strangers”
“Nice, challenging but runnable course.”
