[Overall Results]

Mid Valley Habitat for Humanity invites you to participate in the 2nd annual Bike Race/Tour. Located at New Martinsville, WV on Saturday August 25, 2001. Challenge yourself to a grueling off-road or cardio-vascular testing road course. This fully catered event provides 4 check-in stations per course, emergency service, in-route nutrition/hydration, and time recording. For those that enjoy mastering the course, we invite you to travel at your own pace and take in the splendor of a great country ride.

Bicycle enthusiasts, with a competitive spirit, will engage in head to head competition. Either our grueling off road mountain bike course or our cardio-vascular challenging road course is yours for the choosing. This fully catered event comes complete with 4 check-in stations per course, spotters, emergency service, in-route nutrition and hydration, and accurate time recording.

The 13.6-mile off road course boasts a Weed them out early' 900 ft. vertical in the 1st two miles. Continue on unimproved country back roads, more single track added to last year's competitive course, a tedious downhill including multiple switchbacks, a creek crossing and a final sprint to the finish.

For you Roadies, a 20 mile sprint sees you and the pack heading upwards for the 1st half of the race cresting 3 or 4 significant climbs, some rolling country roads across scenic ridge-tops, a tedious descent equipped with a couple of hair pin turns and a final sprint to the finish. An interesting note is that both courses have a common start and finish.

For those that enjoy the challenge of mastering the course and don't give a hoot how fast the next guy feels you should go, we invite you to travel at your own pace and take in the splendor of a great country ride. You can choose either the road or off road course as well. As you visit at the 4 check-in stations and the finish, to refuel and refresh, you will receive a playing card for a poker hand'. The riders completing the course and ending up with the best hands will win prizes in their category.

When all is said and done, participants will gather for a great pasta luncheon and enjoy the awards ceremony. Need a ride back to your car? Shuttle service will be available upon request .
