Hi folks! We need your help identifying dangerous locations for cyclists! Feb 14, 2022 is the AMATS/DOT deadline for bike path project nominations for the next 3 years. Any problem locations you can identify on bikemaps.org will help us in our efforts.
The 2021 Merry Masher course is groomed and ready to ride! Course is counter-clockwise starting at the beach and then around Mirror Lake. Cut up at the Lakeside bench, out Easy Peasy, around Raven’s Ridge to Edmonds Lake, around the lake and up Red Bog trail to the clockwise entrance to Hot Tamale, cut left at the northern part of the 5k Multiuse and head back and take Wilson’s Way to the finish.
It’s gonna be a PARTY! Light up your rides, as we’re going after dark on a mix of flowy singletrack, a bit of nice wide doubletrack, a couple of great hill climbs, and some beautiful lake riding in the shadow of Bear Mountain in Chugiak.
PRIZES FOR THE BEST ON-BIKE LIGHT SHOWS (costume, decorations, you decide.)
You will have the option of one or two 5+ mile laps. You must complete the race in the 2-hour time limit.
CONSTRUCTION NOTICE: Ben’s Bike Playground is happening! Mirror Lake north parking lot is closed, but trails will remain open, follow the detour signs. Overflow parking available at the boat launch, 400 yards past the beach.
