Mineral Belt Mayhem 2015 2112018 Winter Mountain Bike Race Series

These unique and exciting races occur throughout the winter in and around Leadville. Utilizing groomed nordic ski trails, groomed singletrack, and snowmobile trails, these races are a great way to keep riding and racing during the off-season. Three of the races are even held at night!

A typical course is 12 miles with a mix of spine-tingling conditions. Cost is $20 per race.

All proceeds from the race series go towards Cloud City Wheelers advocacy efforts. These races always end with plenty of tasty food and beverages, laughter and dang good times. Come on up and enjoy the ride!
