SEASONS OF ROTHROCK - SESSION III GREENWOOD FURNACE 

FOLLOW US ON 




MOUNTAIN BIKE RACING

Is as old as the first appearance of the mountain bike itself. The originators descended with heavily modified beach cruiser bikes. They raced numerous mountains against a rudimentary time measurement. You now have the opportunity to race in Seasons of Rothrock Session III on the most advanced and efficient bicycle the world has ever seen. 

 

THE RACE

You will find roots and rocks a’plenty, and a grassroots mountain bike culture that’s unique in its own right. You can expect a fun, rocky, and challenging course that keeps you focused doesn't break your wallet, and gets you home in time for dinner. Registration and Awards will be hosted out of pavilion one. Please use the nearby blacksmith shop picnic area for parking. 

 

WHERE

Greenwood Furnace State Park covers 423 acres in the never-ending Rothrock State Forest. Greenwood Furnace includes a six-acre lake, campground, hiking trails, and a historic district.
