Welcome to the 2013 Mr. Frog's Wild Ride, the sixth annual foothills biking event benefiting youth sports in our area. The first four rides were a resounding success, and we intend to make it even better the sixt time around with the help of our riders, sponsors and volunteers. Mark your calendars now to come to Calaveras County to bicycle through the beautiful Sierra Nevada foothills. All proceeds benefit Feeney Park, a non-profit community sports and recreational facility in Murphys, complete with youth soccer and baseball fields, skate park, walking trails, picnic areas, and an amphitheater. Wildflower-full April is a great time to get into the frontier spirit evoked by Mark Twain in his “Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.” Come join us April 20st, 2013 for our springtime ride in the beautiful Sierra Foothills!
We have redesigned the routes to show off the southwest end of our county and have even included a TIME TRIAL in the middle of the longer ride. We are featuring an 100K and a 50K this year, with shorter options available en route. Don’t think that we’ve made it any easier though, as both rides will leave you hungry for that BBQ at the finish. All the climbing and zippy downhills will be there without the rigors of the rough roads of past Mr. Frog’s Wild Rides. The long route will include a ride to New Melones Lake and feature a short time trial in the middle if desired. Winner of the time trial will be awarded a nice prize at the conclusion of the ride. There will be one mile of gravel in the long ride--that is perfectly rideable--so one can pretend briefly to be a randonneur at the Paris Roubaix. Springtime in the Mother Lode is the best time of the year, and we hope to see you here!
Everyone from kids to grandparents are welcome to join in the fun whether riding or not. Spend Sunday wine tasting, hiking, enjoying the sights and history, shopping, or just relaxing. There will be overnight tent camping allowed inside of Feeney Park, plus great food, live music, and much, much more.
