The Trans-Sylvania Mountain Bike Epic is May 29, 2011


What Trans-Sylvania Epic is:
  • 7 Days of Pure Mountain Biking Bliss in Central Pennsylvania
  • America’s Longest Mountain Bike Stage Race Experience
  • A value priced event at a convenient location offering incredible trails and fun!
The Trans-Sylvania Mountain Bike Epic is a seven day mountain bike stage race scheduled for May 29-June 4, 2011.  The event is based out of the Seven Mountains Boy Scout Campground in Spring Mills, PA, very close to State College.
Five of the race’s stages will loop from the campground.  The other two stages will be within a one hour drive of the campground.
Full transport and food services are offered from the campground, in addition to multiple lodging options.

Who would want to participate in an event like this?
The Trans-Sylvania Epic promoters have worked tirelessly to design courses that are fun and challenging for a wide range of riders.  While we hope to continue to attract the very best pro cyclists to our event, we want to keep the fun factor high for weekend warriors and mid-level enthusiasts.  If you can ride 3-4 hours at a steady pace and smile at the end, you will do just fine at Trans-Sylvania.  The longest courses should not take our slowest riders more than five hours to complete, and most of our courses are shorter than this.  Remember, you’re racing fully supported: aid stations are stocked with food and supplies and the courses are all marked and (modestly) groomed for your enjoyment.  Plus, you’ve got nothing to do all week but ride, party, and recover.
Remember: if you haven’t the time, motivation, fitness, or cash to spend the week racing solo, you can enter our EPIC TEAM category with your buddies.  Read more…
