Description

This activity is closed to further registration.

Notice: This is the XC Race registration for 15 miles. If you are interested in the XXC race, please visit www.bikereg.com, keyword "creature." https://www.bikereg.com/creature

(10+) Legend has it, that long before the water of Carvins Cove flooded the farmland once known as Happy Valley, a strange and shadowy gilled creature roamed the bogs and waterways. Now, for reasons unknown, sightings of an unusual reptilian figure have been widely reported. On October 1, a brigade of endurance mountain bike racers will be sent in to investigate, exploring 15+ miles of dark backwoods while simultaneously competing for the ultimate prize. Creature From Carvins Cove, presented by Virginia's Blue Ridge, invites racers from across the state and beyond to witness the wonders of the Cove's singletrack, sanctioned by the Virginia Off Road Series. This 15 mile XC provides an option for those not quite ready for 40 mile XXC in categories from beginner to expert. By the end of the day on October 1, 2017, we'll know for certain if the creature is for real!


Cost is $30 in advance. Day of registration is available on site for $40.
