Mount Washington hosts Fall Freak Out

Mount Washington hosts Fall Freak Out

Come up to the Bike Park at Mount Washington and Freak Out… over bikes, jumps, downhill races, prizes and more!!

This year’s Fall Freak Out features the Camp of Champions Big Air Bag which will allow riders to throw down crazy tricks with a painless landing. Festival goers can hit the jump and air bag free with a donation to the local food bank.

The Islander Lager Year Ender Bender race will be held on the middle and lower Helter Skelter trail at 2pm on Saturday (register at the Tread Shed 12:00-1pm for just $5, includes a frosty beverage)and a final Island Series Jump Jam will be hosted by pro biker Jordie Lunn on Sunday at 3pm (register at the Tread Shed for $15 from 11am-1pm).

There will be activities for all ages, including a kids bike safety course hosted by Mountain City Cycles, kids bike race and bike decorating contest, face painting, Islander Lager Patio Party and a BBQ in the Alpine courtyard, and sales on bike gear and learn to ride packages at the Tread Shed. Women ride for free and men pay just $25 during this weekend of celebration for the biking community.

Big Air Bag quote from Camp of Champions website-“When you ride hit a foam pit you use most of your energy simply getting out of the foam. With a Big Air Bag, if you land on your wheels you can roll right out of the bag and ride away. If you don’t land on your wheels you can stand up and grab your bike and walk or roll off. It’s such quick turn around that you get triple the amount of riding that you do with a foam pit and you wear yourself out riding, not digging yourself out of the foam.”
