Ride the Whiskey Off-Road. Choose from three different distance options of 15, 30 or 50 miles; each consisting of a carefully curated set of trails in Prescott, AZ.

Starting on Prescott’s historical (and lively) Whiskey Row and climbing into the beautifully distracting views of Prescott National Forest, riders will connect some of the area’s most exhilarating (and challenging) pieces of singletrack, double track, gravel roads and the occasional paved segment.

During your three-day visit to Prescott, enjoy being submerged in the mountain bike industry. Mingle with the most bike-minded people you’ll ever encounter while appreciating the area’s wild wild west heritage and feeling welcomed by its modern day appreciation for the outdoor enthusiast.

With a finisher’s award in the form of a well-earned commemorative pint glass emblazoned with the distance you’ve finished, the community concert w/ free live music, a cold beverage (gratis) from Four Peaks Brewing Co. and the comfort of the former Arizona Territorial capitol’s shaded lawn waiting at the finish line for all Off-Road participants…this is a finish line that will make every mile worth the effort.

The ‘Whiskey’ has a 96% finish rate. However, it’s no walk in the park.

**Please enjoy safely pre-riding the surrounding Thumb Butte Recreation Park trails with caution for other trail users and look out for blind corners.

 Over half the race is on paved road, whiskey off-road should be renamed gravelbike bike because that's all that is needed

 If you want more challenge then ride the 30 or 50 Proof. The 15 isn't as hardcore but AT LEAST half of it is on great single track!

Minor erosion (trail braiding, small ruts developing, brake bumps) due to recent deluge of rain. Should smooth out with riding in now that PNF is re-opened.
