Oil up your bike chains, adjust your handlebars and start training for the Bent Sprockets’ 23-mile bike race taking place on Sept. 9. The 23-mile ride will be for riders ages 16 and older. There will also be an 11-mile race the same day for children ages 13, 14 and 15.
“It will go north on (U.S.) Highway 85, turn on Salt Creek Road, then head south, then take a left on Beaver Creek cutoff, which leads to Beaver Creek, to Highway 16, west into town, back to the Fountain (Inn), taking Ranch Market Road by Wok-n-Woll,” club member Anthony Sandoval said.
The kids participating in the shorter race will be taking the scenic overlook north on U.S. Highway 85 and will be supervised by members of the Bent Sprockets. Signage and traffic control will be in place for both the 23- and 11-mile races.
