Gravity Feed- July 7th Update

This week we are all about racing with the return of Crafts & Cranks and revisiting our new green trail from the Mt. Top Trailhead after a week of riding. Since last week the crew has been hard at work prepping Miracle Mile for another weekend of racing and taking rider’s feedback on riding Going Green and reworking a couple of sections.

This Saturday we’ll be racing, tasting craft brews, listening to LIVE bands and riding carnival rides all day during the 2nd Annual Crafts & Cranks. We’ve teamed back up with the Big Bear Lake Brewing Company to bring you a day filled with music from MainMan, Demrick, Tomorrow’s Bad Seeds and Project NfidelikAh, tasting California’s top craft brews from over 20 brewers and riding great rides like the Mechanical Bull, The Hurricane and our 40’ Ferris Wheel.

Saturday we will host a Endurance Race, a Cross-Country Race and a Downhill Race. The Downhill Race will tale place on Miracle Mile and close that trail for most of the day. All other trails in the Park will remain unaffected by the day’s racing. If you’ll be racing in any of the weekend’s events, your registration includes admission to the concert, tasting and carnival.

Not racing? Pack up the whole family and come enjoy a fun filled day in the cool mountains. General Admission tickets are $25 for adults and include concert admission, 20 tasting tickets and a commemorative tasting glass. Tickets for children from 5-20 years of age are $20 and include concert admission and unlimited access to carnival rides, bounce houses, face painting and other children’s activities.

If you will be hitting the trails in our Bike Park, taking a ride on our Scenic Sky Chair, climbing on our new Climbing Wall or just flipping out on our new Euro-Bungee- your ticket Saturday includes admission to the concert and venue and you may purchase Tasting Tickets inside.

In addition to a week of race prep, our Trail Crew has had a chance to watch riders on Going Green and get their feedback on how the trail is riding in. Based on the observations and conversations, our Crew returned to the trail to rework a couple of corners and smooth out a section here and there. The result? You have another fresh trail ready for you to ride this weekend.

Looking foreword, we are excited to announce we will begin construction on yet another new trail next week. We will be extending Turtle Trail upward to the Mountain Top Trailhead giving us a top to bottom Intermediate trail in the Park. The new Turtle Trail, along with our Adopt-A-Trails, will offer riders who are ready to move on from Small Wonder and Going Green several trails to build their skills on before moving on to Party wave and Westridge.

So come get above the heat this weekend and enjoy a fun filled time at Crafts & Cranks. Whether you are coming to race, ride or just enjoy the fine music and tasty brews, Big Bear is the spot to be this weekend. We’ll see you on the dirt…
