CORBA Events

Part of CORBA’s mission is to create opportunities for mountain bikers in the Chippewa Valley to ride and race the great trails our volunteers build.  Want to hammer against other racers?  Want to push yourself to a PR?  Want to just get out and soak in the singletrack with a fun group of riders?  We’ve got you covered.

Red Flint Firecracker 2021

The Red Flint Firecracker is going hybrid for 2021.  There will be three events to choose from (Road Ride, Trail Run, or Mountain Bike Race), and each of those will have a number of options. While virtual is an option the entire event time (July 25 – July 4) don’t forget you can join the in-person portion on July 3rd.

Hickory Ridge Rush Mountain Bike and Trail Run Races

As laid back or as hardcore as you want to make it, a backwoods autumn favorite through the scenic Chippewa County Forest.  Whether you choose the short course or long, expect challenging terrain that will have you smiling through the pain.

Sadistic Century

A fun and challenging 100 mile, 100 km and 60 km bicycling ride in Western Wisconsin. Short drive from Madison and Twin Cities Area. August 21st, 2021.

Fall Back Blast Trail Run

It’s late fall so why not bring a whole bunch of runners to town to test themselves on the trails at Lowes Creek County Park?  Held the fist Saturday in November, the Fall Back Blast offers up three distances for trail runners: 12.5K, 25K and 50K!

Powder Keg Fat-Bike and Snowshoe and Ski Races

To heck with hibernation.  Winter is as good a time as any to get out and enjoy the trails, and enjoy them you will at the Powder Keg.  You never know what to expect with the weather at this one, but fun is always in the forecast.

Monday Night Group Recreation (MNGR)

Voluntary, year round recreation for anyone to ride, run, hike, snowshoe, fat bike, or ski depending on the season. Leaves from the Expo Entrance to Lowes Creek County Park at 6pm (sometimes earlier during late fall). Helmets required for riders and CORBA assumes no risk. Follow the MNGR Facebook Event Page for the most up to date details.

CORBA Trail Series

New for 2021 is the CORBA Trail Series. Participate in CORBA events to earn points in this free series. The more you do the more points you earn, more details to come but expect some cool swag and awards. Plus volunteers at events earn a point for helping out. For example: The 2021 Powder Keg has multiple events such as snowshoe, fat bike, and ski. Do one of each and help set up course or check course and you’ll get 4 points for the series. Stay tuned for more.
