    Here's the updated thread for this ride.

    Info on our website -
    http://www.bikeforbender.com/home/pioneertown-ride/

    Registration -
    https://www.bikereg.com/pioneertown

    If anyone missed it, we had to change the date from March 9 to April 20 due to all the snow in the Big Bear area.

    For anyone not familiar with Bike for Bender....We started it on honor of Robert Bender who lost his life to cancer when he was 26 years old. Rob was always helping people with bikes, especially younger people, so we have made that the mission of Bike for Bender. We are a 100% volunteer organization with the majority of the money we raise going towards high school mountain bike teams and riders.

    Thank you everyone for the support.

    Does this event sell out or have a rider cap?

    There has been a cap in the past. Not sure how many they are allowing this time around...

    (Just so the Late Comers to this thread know, the OP accidentally left off the "P" in the word Pioneertown, in the title. I fixed it...)

    With the date change, our cap isn't quite determined yet. Still some things to figure out. I'll post up here when we know about a rider cap and day of registration.

    Will transfers be allowed if it does sell out?
    I'm already registered but probably won't be able to ride on the new date. I won't know for sure until less than two weeks before the event.

    Here is the route:

    IT's easy to follow.....and yes you could take the Jeep option whether the promoter wants you to or not. It's not a race, so it's not like you will be DNF'd if you deviate.

    Coming up fast!

    #5 for me... I can't believe it's that many already. :confused: #1 was geared, while 2, 3, and 4 were on the single speed. Back to the geared bike for #5, and (most likely) the first time with rear suspension. :oops:

    Edit: And this ride hurts a lot more than the numbers suggest... Great training ride. :whistling:

    back a few years ago, Snow Summit had a ride called the Pioneer Town Ride. we would load the bikes up in trucks and the riders in busses then drive to the trailhead. i think it was 25 or 30 miles back to Pionner Town.
    this is a pic from the staging area at the top of the mountain

    this was a fun ride. we would start at Onyx Peak and ride the fire roads down. there were a lot of pinch flats. the downhill boys tried to run on soft tires, did not work well.

    That does sound fun!! It was only a couple days ago I realized once you turn around on this ride it's mostly a decent. So I changed my mind and decided I should wear my pads lol :laugh:
