Mountain Bike Racing

Mountain biking is not the first form of cycling that comes to mind when you think of flat Chicago, but we are lucky to have some great mountain biking options nearby.

Palos Forest Preserve in Willow Springs, Ill., is the most popular. These trails offer great opportunities for riders of all skill levels, with miles and miles of single track. Chicago Area Mountain Bikers (CAMBR) oversees maintenance of these trails and schedules maintenance days throughout the year. Before venturing out to these trails, please refer to the CAMBR website for trail conditions. This is important so we don’t damage the trails for all users.

There are three competitive race series in the region. Each of these series provides racing opportunities for all skill levels, including beginner and junior categories.

The WORS and DINO Series are sanctioned by USA Cycling.
