PertNear 20


Join Bluedog Cycles for the 7th annual pertNear 20 Mountain Bike Race that will be utilizing Vernon Trails' sustainably managed trail networks at Hubbard Hills, Rusty Ridge and Sidie Hollow.

ALL NEW THIS YEAR- The race route has been flipped. We will start and finish at Sidie Hollow County Park and race day has been moved to a Saturday to better facilitate the post race party and to encourage CAMPING. We will also be offering a shorter course as we will be lengthening the long course with MORE TRAIL!

All levels of riders are welcome, there is fun for everyone..

How long is the 2018 PertNear 20 Course?

Thing is, the Vernon Trails Trail Crew AND Landowski Trailworx are both crazy busy building new trail from now till race day, so the distance is kind of changing. BUT - it is safe to say that the Long Course will be about 22-25 miles with 2000-2500 feet of climbing. The NEW Short Course will stay at Sidie and be around 10 miles long with about 1200 feet of climbing. And the KID'S RACE goes around the lake for a whopping 2.5 miles of crazy entertainment.

How do I sign up?

Does it cost anything to register? 

The long and short courses are $35 to register and the Kid's Race is $5. Proceeds go directly to Vernon Trails, who work tirelessly to expand access and build community through outdoor recreation in the Vernon County area. 

Is there a map of the race?

A map will be produced soon and we'll be sure to post it here and on our Facebook Event Page as well.
