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!

Trips for Kids
Working in conjunction with Full Circle of Lake County, Wheelers members have established a Trips for Kids chapter. The rides focus on teaching mountain biking skills to kids, and generally having a good time!
Assistance provided by Trips for Kids, helping disadvantaged kids discover mountain biking since 1988!
Trips for Kids chapters nationwide make a difference in kids’ lives by opening their world to mountain biking.
IMBA celebrated the eighth annual National Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day on Saturday, October 2nd, 2012.
This is a great opportunity for you to pass your passion for pedaling on to kids! Details on next year’s event will be announced in early August, and we know it will be bigger and better than ever.
