    Sunday Aug 27: 10th TREASURE VALLEY RALLY - real MTB!

    The 10th annual Treasure Valley Rally (TVR) presents miles of real cross country mountain biking in the heart of Massachusetts. Lots of singletrack, much of it purpose built for mountain biking, decent climbs, plenty of technical challenge, and a grassroots vibe coupled with swimming, food, and races for all ages means a super fun day out for a great charitable cause.

    Two miles of scenic new trail for the 2017 race!!

    The 1,600 acre Treasure Valley Scout Reservation in the center of Massachusetts is rarely open to the public yet offers a solid trail network that's been honed for MTB over the last 11 years by riders from the Team BUMS mountain bike club and the Wachusett NEMBA chapter. We strive to provide a challenge appropriate to your ability with several course variants. The 10 mile main race loop will push you and your bike to your limits as the laps add up, but we have a shortened lap for novices, a much shorter lap for youth/first timers, and even a free small kids race through the woods.

    Registration is at http://bikereg.com/tvr, register now for the best deal. Price is $29 now but increases to $35 on race day.

    Here's what we've accomplished with your help, originally posted on the Treasure Valley Rally Facebook page:

    WHY do we put on the TVR? Making a race happen is tough work, so why do we do this one? The money we've donated so far (nearly $19,000 to the Boy Scouts and $22,429 total including the local fire departments!) has really helped Treasure Valley Scout Reservation. They now have a fleet of 20 working mountain bikes maintained by Downtown Putnam Cyclery, a handful of them brand new. They now staff (for the past 2 summers) a mountain bike program leader during Boy Scout summer camp and have offered the MTB program for that time. Scouts are going for and getting the MTB merit badge!

    Team BUMS MTB Club, Wachusett NEMBA, and local volunteers have donated hundreds of hours over the past 11 years resurrecting, maintaining, and building the Treasure Valley trail network. There's now an official Trails Committee, a new trail map, a trail building school, a five year plan, new trail tools, a MTB building coming in the future, and many, many hours of trail work in the past year. Scouts are helping with trail projects and every year we get a big group of volunteers from Saint John's High School to help do trail projects. Plus, we're cross pollinating with local Wachusett NEMBA volunteers as well with the trail work.

    In short, we see TVR as a driving force in growing mountain biking via the Mohegan Council, Boy Scouts of America as well as providing a resource for many other trail based activities at Treasure Valley! Please spread the word about what we're up to and see you August 27 so you can see it first-hand!

    THANK YOU for your support, we can't do this without our sponsors, racers and volunteers!

    Thanks for reading and racing!
