Wente, by Bike Monkey

An 8-Hour mountain bike relay race and family camping extravaganza.

The Wente 8-hour mountain bike race is far beyond just your typical relay event. It is a full 3-day weekend expedition for your friends and family in one of the most magical places on earth: Wente Scout Reservation.

This team and solo mountain bike race fills very fast because it is limited to just 550 competitors. In reality, the scale of the event is larger than this because racers come with friends and family. It’s what makes this experience so special.

Wente Scout Reservation plays host to thousands of scouts each year and introduces a large portion of them to the joy of mountain biking. The Wente 8-Hour MTB Relay Race does a lot to contribute to the further development of this program, and in its way, the future mountain bikers of America. Whether you’ve been a part of Wente’s regular programming, or have never been exposed to the world of scouting, you’re in for a great treat during this weekend.
