This event not only kicks off Interbike Marketweek, but also encompasses a bicycle demo event open to the public, multiple mountain bike races, road bike rallies, on-bike clinics and off-bike activities for all levels of cyclists and non-cyclists. Event activities are based in the Village at Northstar while riders have access to three chairlifts and gondolas transporting riders to trails traversing the mountain.
The festival kicks-off Friday, September 14 with the Village at Northstar Wine Walk as a welcome to the Sierra surrounding Lake Tahoe. Saturday and Sunday’s activities include bike skills clinics, Northstar Enduro Race, Bosch Boogaloo E-Bike Race, Northstar Downhill Bike Race, Sierra Prospect Road Rally and the opportunity to demo 2019 bikes from leading industry brands.
