Looking for some excitement this weekend? Join the 2012 Simonton Windows Challenge at Mountwood on Sunday, April 15, 2012.
The 17th annual event features a 23-mile mountain bike trail for experts and professional racers, a sports class trail of 16 miles, and a beginners/children’s trail lasting seven miles. The race, which is hosted by the West Virginia Mountain Bike Association, is seen as the official kickoff of the West Virginia Mountain Bike Association Points Series and helps increase awareness of the park’s 50 miles of trails.
“This is a dual points series race with West Virginia and Ohio -- so we have racers that come in from as far away as Columbus and Athens,” says Marty Davis, marketing communications manager for Simonton Windows. “However, there are also many amateurs who come out to be a part of the fun and challenges the course has to offer.
"There are riding activities planned for younger bikers as well. Simonton is proud to be an annual sponsor of this race that promotes wellness and outdoor physical activity. It is a great event for the entire family to enjoy.”
