12 Hours of the Hill of Truth Mountain Bike Race

Saturday, October 7th, 2023
9 a.m. - 9 p.m.

The 12 Hours of the Hill of Truth is a mountain bike race to see how many laps of the course you or your team can complete in 12 hours. There are a lot of ways to approach this: some riders compete to win on every lap, while some like to ride until lunch time and call it a day; some race solo, some compete as a four person team, and some riders just enjoy a few party pace laps with their friends. And some folks truly love a challenge (pain cave!) and race solo on a single speed, while others will casually flip the switch on their e-bike and whiz by you on the uphill. It's completely up to you and can be as challenging as you want it to be - Haw Ridge can really bring the goods.
