Mountain Bike Short Track: We recommend a minimum of a 32mm tire for the short track event. The course is relatively flat with pavement, gravel, and dirt. The start and finish will be at the trail cabin in City Park.
USA Cycling: The Bicycle Short Track is a USA Cycling permitted event. Racers competing in the event must be licensed by USA Cycling. Available at registration, $10 one-day USA Cycling license. Experts must hold an annual USA Cycling license. Approved helmets required when riding/racing on the bike.
Parking: Because the City Park is closed for Oktoberfest, participants and spectators will need to park outside the park and ride/walk to the trail cabin.
