About the SLO Ultra MTB Rides @ Wild Cherry Canyon on September 10, 2017

The breathtaking Wild Cherry Canyon, Land Conservancy and PG&E properties that make up our exclusive course are all PRIVATE. There is absolutely NO ACCESS for the public year round and we support our generous hosts by having zero tolerance. All trespassers will be prosecuted. Please DO NOT attempt to train on the course at any time. Anyone caught trespassing will also be banned for this as well as all future Race SLO produced events.

We have three race distances–50 Mile, 22 Mile & 12 Mile–for the advanced riders to the newbies. The courses are primarily smooth fire roads with some sweet single track connectors. They all include various loops that explore both tree covered canyons and epic view climbs. Wildlife is plentiful and we will share the course with both working cattle and our horse ranch four legged hosts. Come Fall this course will be sunny 75 degrees, sweat worthy, dirty and priceless.

The 2017 SLO MTB is permitted by USA Cycling, Category C, and riders in the 50 Mile & 22 Mile timed events must have a one-day USA Cycling license. Permit #2017-1944.

Mountain bikes, gravel grinders and cyclo cross bikes are well welcome to participate in the SLO MTB.

In partnership with The Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo, we are also hosting a two-day live Blue Grass & Rock Festival. This event is FREE to the public! Learn more on our Festival page.
