The longest running MTB Festival in Washington... is THIS weekend, June 8-9! Grab your pass and gear up for two full days of all things mountain biking at our new venue, Raging River.

As a not-for-profit, this is our biggest fundraising event for the work we do all across the state, so join in the fun while supporting the trails! Get the scoop below on what's happening this weekend.

NEW TRAILS 

You really don't want to miss this one at our new venue, Raging River, as we celebrate the Grand Opening of our Raging River Phase 3 trails! Our Trail Builders have been hard at work on ~7 miles of new trails during this Phase 3 at Raging River over the past year, and we are so excited to finally open these trails for the first time to the public. With the addition of these new trails, Raging River will now have a total of 32 miles of purpose-built MTB trails!

Check out the Raging River trail system on Trail Forks.

ON-MOUNTAIN BIKE SHUTTLES

We’ll be running on-mountain bike shuttles on Saturday and Sunday during the Festival! Shuttles will drop-off at several different locations around Raging River. Please note, a festival pass is required to shuttle. Your Shuttle Ticket helps support our Raging River trails!

Learn more about our On-Mountain Bike Shuttles and grab your shuttle ticket.

BONUS: 

We'll be running a bonus bike shuttle (thanks to our friends at Sacred Rides!) to pick up riders at the bottom of CCDH - so those with Bike Shuttle Tickets can ride almost entirely without pedaling uphill at all! 
Here's the scoop:
- Free for Festival Pass holders, running 11am-3pm Saturday-Sunday
- This shuttle will have LIMITED seats, FIRST-COME FIRST-SERVED, departing once full
- Shuttle will pick up riders at the bottom of Canyon Creek DH ("CCDH"), where the @evo Pit Stop will be!
- Shuttle will drop off riders at the top of CCDH Section 2 where they can decide their next move (another lap down CCDH? Physical Therapy? Go check out the Phase 3 new trails? Or back down Raging Ridge over to Poppin' Tops to avoid the pedal up Raging Tiger?)
Festival Pass holders without an On-Mountain Bike Shuttle Ticket who pedaled up the mountain to get to the downhill trails are also welcome to hop on this free CCDH shuttle.
 
 

PARKING

We have several parking options for you this year at Raging River:

1. Park off-site in North Bend for free and hop on our free bus shuttles to the Festival venue. Bus shuttles will be running frequently (about every 30 min.) from two off-site parking locations. Our bus shuttles can accommodate bikes!

2. Buy a Parking Pass to park on-site at the Festival venue.

Learn more about our parking options and grab your On-Site Parking Pass.
