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

 June 23rd-24th

The Red Flint Firecracker returns once again to Lowes Creek County Park on June 23rd and 24th.

There will be three activities to choose from (Mountain Bike Race, Trail Run Race,), and each of those will have a number of options. You can do one event, do all of the events, or anything in between.

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 22nd, 2022.

Coon Fork 40

Traverse deep swaths of pine forests, classic Amish farm country, and picturesque Wisconsin waterways on beautiful gravel roads through Eau Claire and Clark County lands.

Pick a 28, 45, or 88 mile ride »

Whether you come for a race or a ride, and no matter what bike, you’ll enjoy a gravel party done right.

Fall Back Blast Trail Run

November 4, 2023

The Fall Back Blast is coming up! We have decided to hang up the hybrid model and will not be hosting a virtual race this year. However, along with returning to old traditions, we have a new new distance in the mix: the Marathon! Race Day falls on Saturday, November 4th, 2023!

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.

Take a Kid Mountain Biking

On Saturday, June 3rd, CORBA and 906 Adventure Team will partner to host a FREE “Take a Kid Mountain Biking” day to get kids out on the trails and excited about mountain biking. All families are welcome and no mountain biking experience is necessary. Activities will include group rides based on skill level, skills and obstacle challenges, snacks, and more! Parents are encouraged to ride with their kids, too! Bring a bike in good repair, a helmet and be ready to have FUN on the trails at Lowes Creek County Park!!
