Mountain Bike Race

Jun 4, 2022 8:30 am

A longtime local favorite, the LaFramboise Island Bike Race is held annually in the spring at the LaFramboise Island Nature Area in the middle of the Missouri River.

Suitable for nearly any bike, it's a fast flat course with a fun mix of trail types. There are tight technical turns on singletrack in the woods, sweet open sections of doubletrack, mowed grass paths, gravel rec trail, and a few sassy sandy spots.

Each lap in the course is approximately 5.75 miles, with the number of laps depending on race division. Cash prizes are paid to the top 3 men and women in the Expert and Advanced divisions.

Online registration opens February 28, 2022. Event entry includes tee shirt and post-ride drinks and snacks.

Any off-road bike type is welcome: MTB, fat tire, CX, gravel, etc. E-bikes are not allowed in the race. Helmets are mandatory.
