August 12-13, Santa Rosa
How many adrenaline sports exist whose inventors still wander the earth searching for missing socks? This is true of mountain biking — it’s one of the youngest sports not likely to kill you yet offers as much thrill as ones which might.
So suffice it to say we are proud to turn the Annadel Classic 7 years old this week (it doesn’t do it on its own). Judged over a period of time by our own den mother to be one of the highest quality and most outstanding examples of its kind. We intend to fully rock out on Sunday, and hope you will join us. Bring your underwear.
$65 per person until Wednesday when rates increase by $10. Sign up a group of 7+ and you’ll save 15%.
You’ve got paid and non-paid parking options for the Annadel Classic. Because it’s Sunday, all downtown parking is FREE, and a great idea if you want to roll to the start line and get a nice 2-3 mile warmup. Otherwise, you can pay to park inside Spring Lake, BELOW the staging area, or off Newanga Avenue near the finish line.
Packet Pickup will happen Saturday afternoon/evening at Trailhouse Santa Rosa from 3 – 8pm. On Sunday, packet pickup will happen on-site at the start line from 7:00amuntil you line up. (see below)
