All the races start and end at Mount Holiday. The two longer routes travel down various portions of the VASA Trail. Between the VASA Trail and the finish in the “FitBit Mud Pit,” be prepared to get sloppy. There is alternate finish at a “Chicken Loop” for riders who don’t want their tires to get too wet or muddy, but we all know that is actually for the domestic beer drinkers of the group.
We’ve covered the mud portion of the race, and the sweat factor is clearly a given. It’s time to get down to the important aspect: beer. Right Brain Brewery will be serving up Smooth Operator, Northern Hawk Owl, Will Power, and CEO Stout in cans and also be pouring drafts of Dead Kettle. If you aren’t feeling too athletic, this is a great spectator event as well. Beer drinking is still allowed for those who don’t participate, it just won’t taste as good. Be sure to stop by Right Brain Brewery that night for a ginormous after-party as well. A portion of the proceeds from the after-party’s beer sales will go to benefit our beloved TART Trails.
