What is mountain bike month you ask? Well, this is going to be a month that the Rev crew will be spending a lot of time on mountain bikes, camping and having a grand time in nature. Everyone or anyone is welcome to join us! August and September are hosts to some truly amazing mountain bike events here in the Midwest. The first one being this weekend for Single Speed USA (National) race at Levis Trow Mounds trail in Neilsville, WI (facebook). Wisconsin won the slot to host it so let’s show the country how amazing our trails are and what better way than to shred them on one gear! This is not going to be an easy race but the debauchery that follows makes it worth it all.
Then there is CORP Fest hosted by the hardworking folks at Capitol Off Road Pathfinders. This is a celebration for all the volunteer hours that went into these great local trails. Join us for fun activities and trail riding at the beautiful Bluemounds State Park. There are going to be so many improvements and additions to the exsisting mountain bike trail systems in the upcoming years. Learn all about them in a couple of weeks. So exciting!
Then there is Labor Day weekend! We have been going to Copper Harbor MI for Copper Harbor Fest for the last 7 years. If you didn’t know, Copper Harbor has become a mecca for mountain biking in the Midwest. This trail brings thousands of people from across the country to shred some U.P. singletrack. Nestled in the clear waters of Lake Superior, it has some awe inspiring views and terrain. Worth a visit just to take a dip in the cool lake! Which is always a great way to end this grueling ~30mi race with ~3000 ft of climbing.
Revolution Cycles is experiencing a tremendous growth lately. We’ve doubled our workforce and inventory in the last two years. We love working on all of your bikes, but witihin the next couple of weeks, we’re going to finally take some much needed time to ride OUR bikes. Posted above is our open hours for the August and September.
Anyone interested in mountain biking, drop by and ask us about it. Not only are there great trails in our lovely state of Wisconsin, there are so many just biking distance from our capitol. Lastly, come hangout with us on our Thursday Night Rides! Updates weekly on our facebook on where and when to meet. It’s a casual ride out to Quarry Ridge in Fitchburg. Ride as much or as little singletrack as you want but we all ride together!
We’re excited for the next couple of weeks, hope you can join us or at least hope you all are getting out there for some Summer fun!
