Mountain bike race on tap next Sunday in Pocomoke City

(Nov. 30, 2012) The Eastern Shore International Mountain Bicycling Association will present its fourth annual Mountain Bike Race on Sunday, Dec. 9, in Pocomoke City. The event, held each December, is open to adults only, though spectators of all ages are invited to cheer on the riders.

Registration will begin at noon at the Lower Shore YMCA, located at 1900 Worcester Highway; the race will begin at 1 p.m. Cost is $5 for YMCA and ESIMBA members, $10 for nonmembers, and all levels of riders are welcome to participate. There will be expert and novice courses. Riders will choose 10- or 20-mile races on singletrack dirt trails. Categories will be determined by the number of registered riders.

Participants are encouraged to take a water bottle for the ride, as well as snacks (pot luck). Refreshments will be provided and cyclists may ride the course after the completion of the race, at approximately 3 p.m.

Eastern Shore IMBA creates, enhances and protects great trail experiences for mountain bikers on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. For additional information, or to register in advance, contact President Tres Denk at tres@esimba.org or 410-430-4992.
