Big Woods Classic


New Trail, New Race, 100% FUN!

Online Registration Closes Thursday at 8:00pm Click Here to Register

Race on the newest trail system in the Twin Cities. With over 12 miles of new construction completed in 2016, Three Rivers Park District’s Lake Rebecca Park Reserve will be host to the Big Woods Classic on Saturday, July 15th. Shred through tightly weaving singletrack that climbs and descends through dense oak and maple forests, open prairies and scenic wetlands that are home to a thriving trumpeter swan population – all while catching beautiful views of Lake Rebecca.

One of the highlights of the Landscape Structures Big Woods Classic is the amazing race village at Hillside Picnic Area. Nestled in the heart of the start/finish area, racers and their fans have ample room to hang out, picnic, meet with sponsors and vendors, demo a huge selection of bikes, try family-friendly activities, drink amazing beers from Lupine Brewery, eat great food, and be merry! All with a stunning 180-degree view of the course.

The new singletrack trail in Lake Rebecca will follow a similar layout as the trails at Elm Creek and Murphy Hanrehan Park Reserves. The new trail system will build from beginner to intermediate to advanced, getting progressively more difficult as you bike further from the trailhead at the start/finish area. This is ideal for racing, as it provides the opportunity to segment portions of the trail for different classes and ability of riders. No matter your skill level, you are sure to be appropriately challenged. Click the maps below to see the proposed course and estimated distances for each race.

The MNMTBS is expanding and we want to add a few passionate mountain bikers to our leadership group.  We are currently seeking the following members; 
  • Finances and taxes

  • Safety & course vetting 
  • Two social media posters
  • Two general volunteers for administrative tasks  
The driving force for the MNMTBS is to promote mountain bike racing and provide a sustainable structure for local races. The MNMTBS is a non-profit organization and run by volunteers. Each role is structured so that it is not an overwhelming amount of time commitment, and all of our members find it very rewarding.   It is important that we continue to provide racing opportunities for families long into the future and therefore we need to add volunteers to our ranks.  If you are excited about mountain biking and want to explore this opportunity please contact us by replying to this email.

rochester mn mtb blog Newton's Third Law is wrong: Although it states that for each action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, there is no force equal in reaction to an attack by Gunnar Soroos. Gunnar Soroos rides for Toms Shoes Cycling Team. Gunnar Soroos is so crazy and awesome that he flips out ALL the time. I heard that Gunnar was eating at a diner. And when some dude dropped a spoon Gunnar Soroos killed the whole town. My friend Oprah Winfrey said that she saw Gunnar Soroos totally uppercut some jerkface just because they opened a window. Gunnar Soroos has two speeds. Fast, and Kill! The main export of a Gunnar Soroos attack is pain. You can control how people can interact with you and your friends. Choose who can see you, who can speak to you, who can hurt you, and who can be ignored. eastwood mountain biking rochester ma
