I am sorry to say the State has denied our request to use the double track/hiking trails. Unfortunately this denial is due to the fact that too many people still ride those sections where bikes are banned. By allowing us to use that during a race, they feel it sends the message that it's OK to ride the hiking trails. . . which, of course, it is not.
So the race lap will be the standard mountain bike lap (including all loops) for the WEMS race.
While I realize this is disappointing to many, I ask that instead of complaining we be THANKFUL the state even allows us to hold this event on their property. 5 miles of single track is better than not being able to ride at all. If that does not appeal to you. . .there are many other cycling events that same day, choose what does appeal to you.
Thank you for your understanding.
