The Wausau community features a great riding area christened Nine Mile Forest. When we were teenagers we'd blast across these trails on dirt bikes (motorcycles) but now it's a regionally well known mountain bike park.
I'll be heading out of this Sunday after church to check out the Trek Big Ring Classic. The Cat 1 men and women go off at 1:30 pm (24 miles for females, 30 miles for males) and it looks to be a great contest.
Nine Mile is also the host location for the upcoming Wausau24 (hours) on July 30.
It's great to see these grass roots events prosper and thrive in my hometown. Check out the variety of events featured by the Wisconsin Off Road Series:
