Slab City Challenge
August 12, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
After assessing trail conditions after the very wet last month we’ve experienced in Vermont, and as we’ve seen things start to dry out a bit, we’ll still be hosting Slab City Trail Challenge August 12th! The route this year will be modified to work around the current trail washouts in certain critical connections. Stay tuned for the route update on August 1st and some final details about the event as we’ve adapted things to make sure we can host a wheelie awesome fundraiser for Ridgeline’s Youth Mountain Bike Programming!
Registration is open!
General Info: Join us for an EPIC Randolph mtb adventure, the Slab City Trail Challenge! This second annual fundraiser for the Ridgeline Outdoor Collective’s Youth Program will take you across virtually all of the Randolph area trail network. The roughly 20 mile adventure will start and finish at The Gear House and link up classic single track, local favorites, flow trail and some spicy new downhills. Choose your own adventure, or ride the full course! ALL profits will be put directly to Ridgeline Outdoor Collective’s Youth Program to foster skills and stewardship among the youth in our cycling community to keep building the stoke for years to come.
Slab City Background: Are you wondering where the term Slab City comes from? Back in the late 1800’s Randolph was referred to as Slab City because of its robust lumber industry. It still has a few small mills that supply locally sourced lumber for the community. In addition, local mtb guru Paul Rea ran Slab City Bike and Sports in Randolph when Vermont mountain biking took off in the early ‘90s. Randolph hosted the New England Mountain Bike Festival for 5 years in the 90s and helped lay the groundwork for Vermont’s amazing mountain biking scene we all love today! We have enjoyed bringing back the spirit of slab city and look forward to our second year this summer, August 12!
