About this event

* Registration ends Sat 09-10-22 11:59 pm. There is NO IN-PERSON registration*

We are pleased to announce Trek Bicycle Store of Anchorage as the sponsor for the first annual Mirror Lake MUDDY Masher DOWNCOUNTRY bike race!

What does downcountry mean? Welp, it’s your standard multi-lap XC MTB race with the new downhill lines in the loop. These are all rollable, but should put a little excitement into your flow! (as well as some climbs to get your heart racing.)

This is not a cyclocross race. 2.2″ width tires minimum to protect the trails.

The race course is dependent on conditions, but expect a short course (6+ miles) and a long course (12+ mile) options that can be finished within the 2-hour time limit. There will be a youth single-lap race starting at the same time.

This event is a fundraiser for Chugach Mountain Bike Riders and proceeds will go to support the improvement of the Mirror Lake Singletrack.

When: Sunday, Sept 11th. Bib Pick-Up 2pm. Race Start 3pm.

Where: Mirror Lake Park, Mile 24 Glenn Hwy, Chugiak, Alaska.

Cost: $35 adults/$15 youth


THE MERRY MASHER 2020

The mid-winter Merry Masher fat bike race is the main membership drive and fundraiser for Chugach Mountain Bike Riders and proceeds go to support the improvement of the Mirror Lake Singletrack. It is usually held on the weekend between Christmas and New Year’s.

Here’s a map of the proposed 2020 winter race:
