    The Chico State Cycling Club will be hosting a nice little event called the Bidwell Bump on September 14th. This is a fundraiser race to help send Chico State riders to the Collegiate Mountainbike Nationals all the way in Banner Elk, NC in late October.

    The Bump takes place in Bidwell Park, situated next to and inside of Chico. The event will consist of a mass start XC Ride at 10am, followed with a Super-D type (1 minute gaps, but it is LONG) downhill starting at 2pm, with a bbq at hooker oak. Registration will be open at 8am the day of the event, and will be closed 30 minutes before the start of each race.

    This is going to be in Upper Bidwell park, with all XC riders Starting at the parking lot by the big white cross, then going up North Rim and down B trail. Beginners will take the short way home down Upper Park fireroad, while Expert/Sport will cross the creek and go up a demanding climb to Guardian's trail, then down Bloody Pin with a section of South rim thrown in for good measure. Sport/Expert finishes at the old shooting range, Beginner will finish at the parking lot by Horseshoe lake.

    Super-D will start at Green Gate, then follow Guardians trail down to the finish at the Old Shooting Range, taking a more technical and downhill-y way than the XC course. Shuttles will not be provided to go up Hwy 32 to green gate, so you will either need to bring a shuttle vehicle or be really good at persuading people. There will be no Beginner class in the Super-D, because Guardians is not a beginner friendly trail; It is full of sharp volcanic rocks and venomous snakes and places to fall off and break a clavicle and have to get airlifted out and very scary things! But the Expert and Sport classes should be fine. with waivers.

    This is a long, hot, tough, rocky race so bring lots of water (at least 100oz for Sport/Expert XC riders), some spare tubes and plenty of food. Temperatures can still be above 100F this late in September. There will be some people helping around the trails for emergencies, but riding smart is the key here.
    The Bar-b-q afterward will start at 6 or 7pm, and will feature lots of meat, softdrinks, and a raffle.

    A donation to the CSUC Cycling Club will be requested for racing:
    XC or Super-D: $20
    XC and Super-D: $30
    BBQ: $5! extra

    Any Proceeds will be a great help in getting our team to the Nationals this year.

    -Max Hinckley
    President, CSUC Cycling Club

    The "Bidwell Bump" is one of the oldest official mtn bike races in the country. It's a great course that's full of technical challenges.

    Now I'm even more pissed that I just left Chico and am stuck here in the land of the spoon-fed. This beginners' XC course used to be one of my daily rides.

    Sounds cool. No rain this year, right?

    I really wish the XC course continued all the way down Guardian though. I'm not excited about Bloody Pin on an xc hardtail or walking back up Tennis Ball hill (?). Oh well

    Last year the Bump was rained out in Bidwell and moved to Oroville. Here is a link to the 2006 Results.

    I'll be shuttling the Super D all week, anyone who wants to join, hit me up.

    Do they take the course through the second green gate, or drop down to south rim right before the turn off?

    I was chatting with the coordinator this weekend and he said we're going to be staying high and going through the gate. The reasoning was to keep the D in super D as there are a few steepish climbs on south rim. Also, we will be going around and dipping down near the golf course instead of the hike-a-bike up and over the hill to the finish.

    I hope you can borrow something smaller than your 45 lb stab, I'm not sure if those chicken legs can pedal that thing uphill too...

    First of all, going through the second green gate means going around one of the best sections of trail in the park. why choose fire road over ripping singletrack action. Second, the other alternate line, dipping near the golf course, also has multiple short climbs and is slower overall. It is a fun section of trail, but both these route choices should be changed back to the way it was raced before.
    Either way, I'll be there and i'm shooting for something around 20:00.http://forums.mtbr.com/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif
