Of course we are returning to our permacourse at the Bellingham BMX venue, this time likely before it gets muddy. We'll have hard clay (hopefully softening with a bit of rain), grass, some bridges, a longer woods section, our custom Belgian stairs, and quite possibly some new additions yet to be added this year, depending on weather and the amount of help we get!
The course is mostly short rolling hills with some sand but also some very sticky sections, depending on weather. The abandoned golf course surface has mostly been reconditioned to short, new grass. We also have an open forest section to give you that loamy singletrack feel but still with room to pass.
Watch the short film called Everyone is Friends we made in partnership with Right On Brother Films during our amazing debut race in October 2013 as an entry into the WMBC Shoot the Trails fundraiser film competition. You should get a taste of amazing scene we have created just north of Bellingham! You can also check out the gallery for recent course condition images.
Coincidentally (perhaps), in 2016 Shoot the Trails immediately follows this event on Oct. 8th, 6pm at Settlemyer Hall in the Bellingham Tech College! What a double-header in the local cycling scene that will make!
