Some of you old-timers may remember we used to do this at the old Adirondack Mountain Bike Festival in the 1990s. This is a great family event.
Slow Race – How slowly can you ride between two points without stopping or putting a foot down while staying in your lane? Slowest person wins. Run in heats, 2 racers at a time.
Barrel Race – The fastest to race through a series of barrels (or pylons) wins. Run as time trial or in heats, if room enough.
Log Pull – A block of wood is attached to the bike with a rope and the fastest rider over a short course wins. Run in heats (2 racers at a time).
Balance Race – Competitors ride on sections of timber that narrow from 8″ to 2″ wide. Points are given for riding the length of the timbers and deducted for not reaching the end. Note: Timbers on the ground, not elevated.
Longest Wheelie – Just like the title says – longest wheelie wins.
Rodeo Entry Fees: $5/each event or $20 for all 5 events
Points awarded for each event toward overall rodeo prizes:
1st – 5 points; 2nd – 4 points; 3rd – 3 points
Rodeo Prizes: 1st place prize for individual events;
1st, 2nd & 3rd prizes awarded for overall rodeo
Kids Race: Kids 18 & under do several laps on a short, relatively flat course so the spectators can cheer a lot. Race length varies from less than a mile for younger kids to up to two miles for older teens.
Age classes: 7 & under – 4 laps; 8-11 – 6 laps; 12-15 – 8 laps; 16-18 – 10 laps.
Hill Climb: Competitors race up a steep gravel road to a pre-determined finish point. This is a time trial start.
Circuit Race: A relatively short course on easy trails for older teens and adults. Competitors race around the course several times so spectators can cheer a lot. Total race length may be up to 5 miles.
Race Entry Fees: Kids Race $5; Hill Climb $10; Circuit Race $10
Race Prizes: 1st, 2nd & 3rd prizes for Hill Climb & Circuit Race;
All kids get a prize for Kids Race.
Huffy Toss – Competitors each throw a dollar (or a five) into a hat and whoever can throw the old Huffy bike farthest, wins the pot. (The other half goes to the Inlet trail fund.) Competitors cannot step past the foul line. This is an activity that can be run by the competitors themselves in a designated safe area.
