XC Mountain Bike Race presented by Partners

Attention all MTB cyclists: Due to today's weather creating unsafe conditions on the course, we are cancelling the XC Mountain Bike race. 

We are providing a full refund. Please check your registration email for details.

We're bummed but safety is our first priority. Please email us with questions: info@clevelandsports.org.

Are you someone who likes the road less taken? When you come to a fork in the road, do you choose both paths? Do you like the crunch of leaves, the splatter of mud and the impact of two wheels on a rugged trail?

This closed course, loop will you take you through Cleveland Metroparks Bedford Reservation utilizing a single track, park roads and sections of the all-purpose trail. New for 2018: Youth Race added!
