Before the long sunny summer days are over, take your two wheels on a trip to the Shenandoah Mountain 100 Backcountry Mountain Bike Race in Stokesville, Virginia. There’s still time to register for the event this weekend!

On Sunday, August 31, Shenandoah Mountain Touring will send bikers along a one hundred mile course through the George Washington National Forest and across six peaks.

The first Shenandoah Mountain 100 took place in 1999, and has since then become a staple event in the Virginia mountain biking scene. For its 15th annual run, the course will follow last year’s same successful path over the mountains and will include six different aid stations fully stocked with water and snacks to help you beat the miles. The race now also offers a camping option at Stokesville Campground and a big pasta dinner perfect for all your carb-loading race preparation.

Shenandoah Mountain Touring welcomes racers and volunteers alike for the 2014 competition. Register here for “the only true big mountain 100 on the east coast”, or go here to find out how to give your favorite bikers a hand along the way as a volunteer. Hurry to make one of the last 39 spots left and enjoy a day on the trails at the Shenandoah Mountain 100 Backcountry Mountain Bike Race!
