Join us for the first Annual Mule Mountain Mayhem.

Our goal with this event is for anyone who rides a mountain bike to be able to participate and have fun regardless of ability and age.  For those that don't want to participate in one of the events, you're still welcome to come out and socialize with the rest of us. There will be food trucks to get your grub on, music to chill to, and refreshments provided by Redding Trail Alliance.   For those that want to participate, we will be having the following events: 

Checkpoint Challenge • $20 • 2pm

If you haven't participated in one of our Checkpoint Challenges before, here is how it goes down.  We will be starting the race at 2 pm exactly, so make sure you get there early enough to register and get your map.  At the start of the challenge all participants will open their packets which contains a map.  This map will have checkpoints marked all throughout the Swasey Recreation area, many in areas that you might not have visited before.  You will have 2 hours to get as many checkpoints as possible, you choose the route.  To make things more interesting some checkpoints will have challenges at them, potentially worth 2 points, one for finding it and one for completing the challenge. Those that return the soonest with the most points win!  Since people have so much fun riding in groups, you can participate as a team, but will be scored as individuals. There will only be mens and women category, no age brackets. 

Kids Treasure Hunt • FREE • Ages 10 and younger • 1pm

Like the full scale checkpoint challenge but in a much smaller area.  The kids will get a treasure map and with or without the help of their parents they will get 30 minutes to find as much treasure as possible.  

Bike Limbo & Bike Toss

For each of these events you get one try per ticket.  Tickets cost $1 each and all proceeds benefit Redding Trail Alliance.  There will be a referee at each station who will record your best effort.  Prizes for top participants in each event. 

Later Event: September 28
