We certainly hope you got out to Woollyland yesterday - conditions were awesome. However, all good things must come to a (hopeful) brief end - Mother Nature has spoken and we must listen - trails are closed until the rain ends and the trails have a chance to dry out.

This weekend was full of some EPIC bike adventures for a few of our fellow Woolly bikers! Some near (StradaFango), some far (TransIowa). Stay tuned for what will be an entertaining recap of said adventures!

Until then, think happy "good" weather thoughts for this coming weekend and our own EPIC adventures of the Woolly Wander Scavenger Hunt on Saturday, May 6 and the 11th annual Woolly Race on Sunday, May 7. Looking forward to seeing you all there!

A Mammoth Woolly Update - MGC, Woolly Wander, Woolly Gear, Volunteers Needed

Seriously, this a big one.  Mammoth sized even.  There is a lot of stuff going on in Woolly Land.  Check out some of the updates below.  You can be sure you'll be hearing much more in the coming days and weeks as we get ready for the Woolly Race.

Mammoth Gravel Classic

Up first, the Mammoth Gravel Classic is THIS weekend.  Get those taxes filed and come on out to Saint Croix Falls on Saturday to enjoy this great gravel event.  I was riding some of that same gravel this past weekend and it should be another awesome ride.  We will see what this weeks precipitation does to the sand that was definitely out there in abundance last weekend.

Woolly Wander

Maybe you've seen the news already, maybe you haven't.  Saturday May 6th, otherwise known as the day before the Woolly Race, we are hosting the first Woolly Wander.  This is an all ages, all comers scavenger hunt on the Woolly Trails in Saint Croix Falls.  Be sure to come and you could win CASH PRIZES at this FREE EVENT.  You heard that right.

Check the Facebook event or the Web Site for more information.

Woolly Race

Of course there is the big race on Sunday May 7th.  Be sure to be there to kick off the 2017 MN Mountain Bike Series.  Registration is open so be sure to get on it.

Woolly Race Volunteers

What's that?  You don't want to race your bike but you want to contribute?  The Woolly Race can't happen with out a bunch of awesome volunteers.  The race is the main fundraiser for the Woolly.  By volunteering at the race you are helping support the club and the trails the rest of the year.

Volunteers are needed for a wide variety of positions, many of which can be done in pairs. You can volunteer for a full day, half day, or even just a couple of hours and still have plenty of time to cheer on your favorite racer, compete in one or more of the races, and enjoy Woolly 2017 as a whole. Anyone able to commit to 4 hours or more will get a free Woolly Race T-shirt as a thank you for their time.

Position Descriptions and Hours Needed:
  • Registration: 7am – 1pm
  • Course Marshals: 8:45am-4:00pm Direct and assist riders and spectators, monitor crossings and report accidents.
  • Feed zone: 8:45am-4:00pm Hand out water/energy drink on course or in finish area post races.
  • Clean-up/Tear down: 4:00pm ‘till it’s all packed up 

Positions will be done in shifts, so it is not necessary to commit to the full time listed for each. Just specify what hours you will be available to work. Email: with your name, phone#, email address, hours desired to work, position desired, t-shirt size and we will confirm receipt. Effective volunteers will be assertive and proactive, but always courteous and helpful. Thank you in advance for your consideration to help the WBC put on this yearly event!

Woolly Gear

Finally, the Woolly storefront is open again for you to pick up all of your sweet Woolly Kit to ride around in this summer.  The store will be open until April 30th when the order will be placed.  You're sweet new duds should arrive about the end of May.

Mammoth Gravel Classic Updates

Hey folks, I know you are dreaming about dirt single track.  We should have some updates soon.  For the moment, we are still closed.  There are a number of places opening in the cities so until we can call the Woolly open you can still get a dirt fix.

But!  We are just nine days away from the Mammoth Gravel Classic.  The folks over at Woolly's favorite bike shop Cyclova XC have been getting ready for it.

Head on over to see their latest updates.
