The 3rd Annual 12 Hours of Humboldt is coming at the end of August.

Come to beautiful Humboldt County to race under the shade of the giant redwoods in the Arcata Community Forest. You NorCal inlanders may want to note, average temp in Arcata in August is 62 degrees! Ahhhh.

For those with a goal of going to the 24-Hour World Championships at Whistler, BC, here's your last chance to qualify.

Our course is legendary...last year Tinker Juarez called it "one of the best I've ridden." Our 8.75-mile course has 1670' of climbing per lap on a mix of fireroad and twisty singletrack that's fun to ride.

The start/finish is in Redwood Park, right next to Humboldt State University. You don't get better in-town convenience than this. Your team can literally have lunch delivered right to your pits! Grocery stores, restaraunts, spousal diversions (movie theaters, Farmer's Market, downtown shopping), are all just minutes away.

We offer classes for teams of 4, 3, 2 or solo in all the usual subcategories (beginner, sport, expert, pro, singlespeed, tandem, unicycle, etc.)

Entry fee of $50 per rider includes t-shirt and all on-course support including Hammer Gels, water and Cyto bottle hand-offs, fruit spread throughout the day, and a really fun time in beautiful surroundings.

For more info, course map, etc., visit www.teambigfoot.net.

Not sure what you're looking for

I ride the Forest a couple times a week. Fun, fast, twisty in spots, in the trees, not too technical, plenty (lots?) of climbing with some steep sections but no long, sustained steeps. If you can't work up a grin out there you've got problems.

Great vibe at the event, and the park (the staging area) is a good place to hang out and for the family to hang out, if you have one.

I am not affiliated, but I'll be there.

Will you require lights for the last hour or so?

Want to make sure I bring what I should. :)

No lights needed...

That's why we run it 8 to 8, so folks can get a taste of endurance racing without having to invest a bunch of money in lighting systems.

That's also why at our 12 hour events only laps COMPLETED by 8pm count.
