The City of Port Jervis Holds Erie 80 Mountain Bike Race in City Park before Halloween
Port Jervis, NY – The city is working hard at showcasing the new trail system in the newly opened Watershed Park which will host the Erie 80 Mountain Bike Race on October 29th. The race will have three distance options for participants including a 12 mile, 25 mile, and 50 mile course. Trail crews have been working hard to build a fun, challenging, fast, and technical course attracting mountain bike riders and racers of all abilities. Racers will face single track terrain with rocks, logs, roots, and water crossings.
The start of the race will take place on Front Street with a police escort to Brewers Reservoir. From there, racers will give it their personal best and finish the course in the fastest time possible. Racers will be categorized by age, bicycle type, and ability level. Prizes will be distributed to all of the top 3 finishers within each category.
