Halloween Hell Ride, Saturday October 27th

Hello all, There are a number of people who have contacted me in regards to rescheduling an event in lieu of the cancelled Night Race. So I have come up with an event that will take place Saturday October 27th, at 5 p.m. Meet at Bruening’s parking lot on the corner of Ice Cave and Quarry Hill roads. We will then go on a group ride for an hour or 2. We will regroup at the Pugsley Pit; around 7 o’clock where we will have time trials for all that would like to participate. We will have prizes for the best costume, fatest bike, Fastest rider, slowest rider, and most intoxicated, but not belligerent, along with others I have yet to think of. We will have a rockin fire to keep you warm along with some tasty meat products cooked over an open flame. Bring something to drink and wear a costume if you wish.

DHPT Trail Work Day

This Sunday, October 21st we will meet at Bruening's Garage, by the Luge at 11 a.m. We will be doing work on Lower Randys, making the initial climb more sustainable and fixing the crazy switchback going into Backside. The more people we have the quicker it will go, so don't be a lazy POS and get out and pull your weight.

QR Codes are now on the Trails

Maps suck, I hate everything about them. They show you where you want to be, not where you are in relationship to where you want to be. Welcome to the smart phone revolution. All DHPT trail signs now have QR scan codes attached to them. You can scan any one of the signs and it will pull up a map of the trail system, along with a pin point GPS waypoint of your current location. Once you scan one barcode, you will be GPS tracked throughout your whole ride. We will even post a scan code that you can scan from this website, so you can be ready to go before you even leave the confines of your domain.
This Saturday! 10/13 - Decorah in the Dark.
