Every fall Revolution Bicycles hosts the BOGSTOMP “race” in Elk River. An event not to be missed the format is cyclo-cross-ish with a mix of singletrack, pavement, gravel, grass, packed dirt and sometimes mud. The course is virtually flat but still offers some technical challenges keeping it interesting, fun, and lively for a wide variety of riders. From cross bikes to pixie bikes to DH bikes; virtually any type of bicycle can navigate the course. There are two adult races, a 30 minute and a 60 minute. During intermission between the adult races Revolution plays host to possibly the most popular event of the day: the kids race! The kiddos race on a shortened version of the course and there are two kids’ races; a 1 lap 7 year old and under and a 2 lap 8-12 year old bracket.
There is always a BBQ and a keg or two with plenty of time to hang out, celebrate, and simply enjoy our awesome cycling community.
Check out this article on Pink Bike by Ryan Wiegman for a nice idea of what the day is about.
