Post Woolly Race Survey

Wow, what a weekend!  The entire Woolly Crew would like to thank each and every racer, family member, spectator, sponsor, and Mother Nature for a great event.

If you joined us this weekend we would really appreciate it if you would participate in a very brief survey.  The purposes are two fold.  One we want your honest feedback so we can make the event even better next year.  Second, we'd love to have some data to help support our belief that Bikes Mean Business to St. Croix Falls.

The survey is 8 questions, 9 if you count optionally entering your email address for a chance to win a sweet Woolly T.  It shouldn't take you more than a couple of minutes.


We hope to see you back in Woolly Land soon.

The Woolly Bike Club would like to thank everyone who came out today to Wander Woolly Land.  From the sounds of it, everyone who went out had a good time.  We had over 20 people take a shot at winning prizes.  Most excitedly, the majority of them were kids!!  A family fun event for sure.

Without further ado, here are your winners.

Anyone can win, random selection: Charli Worcester
Get all 20: Issac Rynes/Charlie Valeen

Stop by the Woolly Race Headquarters tomorrow anytime during the race to receive your prize.  Don't know where Race Headquarters is?  Ask any of the Woolly Volunteers tomorrow and they will get you pointed in the general right direction.

Woolly Weekend Update - Race Weekend!

We have clearly done something right!  You can't possibly ask for better weather than we are going to have for the big Woolly Weekend.  So, shall we run down a few reminders about the weekend?


Come on out today and pre-ride the course.  I'm not sure we've got everything fully marked yet, but grab the map here and you should be able to figure it out fairly well.  Keep your heads up, we will have folks out doing some final trail work to make sure everything is in perfect shape for the weekend.

Before or after riding, be sure to stop at one of our sponsors for some fueling.  We highly recommend Valley Sweets, Mama T's Sweet Treats, and Dalles House Restaurant and Lounge.  You will find something for everyone at one of those establishments.


Saturday afternoon is of course the innagural Woolly Wander.  Come check out our trails and the city of St. Croix Falls as part of this scavenger hunt.  Its FREE, family friendly, and has $200 in CASH PRIZES plus additional SWAG PRIZES.  Hit up the Woolly Trailhead between 1pm and 5pm (must be returned by 5pm so don't start then) to pick up a clue sheet and start exploring.

Additionally the city of St. Croix Falls is hosting a bunch of other fun family friendly events all day.  Check out the St. Croix Falls Spring Awakenings page for all sorts of fun activities.


Then of course we have the big day on Sunday.  A full schedule of racing to kick off the Minnesota Mountain Bike Series.  Last year we set an attendance record.  With weather like this on tap, I say we try and outdo ourselves.

If you don't want to race, but still want to pitch in, we can always use a few more volunteers.  Send an email to woollyvolunteers@gmail.com and we will gladly find you a place to pitch in for a few hours.

Thank our Sponsors

As always, we couldn't do this without the generous support of our sponsors.  Check out these awesome local businesses and be sure to thank them if possible.  If you hit up any other local establishments be sure to tell them you are in town for the Woolly.  We want people to know that the Woolly means business!
