Barry Near of Trek Store is leading the charge in attracting new riders. “We’re really excited to be the presenting sponsor of the Summer and Fall 8 Hour events for 2015. I’ve participated in these event’s for over 8 years now and what I love about them is the comradery! They take you back to when the whole mountain bike scene was first starting, and same minded people got together to ride, compete and just have a great time in the outdoors.”
2015 will feature two new 5-6 rider categories. The 5-6 person “Club” category is for cycling clubs and teams, and the 5-6 person “Corporate”
category for company, business or office teams. The Corporate category is focused on fun and participation, with a modified new-rider friendly course, so you can convince your work colleagues to come out and join the fun!
