Help keep the race course in tip top shape!

Bike Hinton

Our Chief of Course for the Hinton Growler, Mike, asks for your help in keeping the race course in it's best possible condition. 

With the warm weather we need all the help we can get keeping our Growler race course in good condition, to do this we ask that you refrain from riding regular mountain or "skinny" tire bikes on the course, this will help control unnecessary ruts and potential hazards with the thawing and freezing. Thank you
