Cycling in Casper is just awesome right now. There is so much opportunity for a biker of any skill level. We are excited to be a part of it!!
The women's rides have been a hoot (so I've heard from some of the ladies who have attended) and the beginners are learning skills and trails fast!! Way to go ladies!!
The group rides are getting pretty big. The last ride there were 20 on the trails at Muddy Mountain.
The full moon rides are still going strong and we get a pretty good turnout at each event. The next full moon is Tuesday. So stay posted on location and ride host.
The Fat Fish series races have been crazy awesome! We are so happy to see so many on the trails. Over 200 people are registered for the series and our largest race was last weed with 103 racers. Please thank your race hosts and more importantly, our teams sponsors! Without their help, we could not make this happen.
The WY High School Mountain Bike League season starts August 1st, but teams in Casper, Laramie, Cheyenne and Lander have started getting together for camps, skills clinics, bike maintenance and more. Check out the Casper area teams link at www.casperyouthmtb.blogspot.com for any information on that. Registration for the team ends late July and the FIRST EVER WYOMING YOUTH MTB RACE will be held August 12th on Casper Mountain. There will be a citizens race that day too. The coaches encourage you to help volunteer and then race when the youth are done. Here is video of the race course for that race.... https://vimeo.com/44887914
Remember racers, mountain biking can be dangerous at times. Ride safe and always wear your helmet. I also highly suggest full finger gloves all the time!! Check out this video and then think what his hands would have looked like had he not worn gloves... http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=MM_Y03bnqyk
