UPDATE!! 6:00 a.m. 7/27/14 - The Battle on the Ridge Mountain Bike Race is CANCELED due to heavy rain and poor trail conditions.


What is the Battle on the Ridge all about?

The race is USAC sanctioned. Non USAC members will have to purchase a 1 day USAC license for $5.

You're in for a treat when you race this course. Most people don't expect it - the trail is technical with plenty of hills, log hops, and turns - AWESOME riding. The trail system is accessible any time - if you don't know where to go, check out the map of the Quarry Trails on Be aware that Fall Hill Ave. is closed due to construction. For trail closings due to weather, check out

This race is part of the  Virginia Off-Road Series and also part of the VA MTB Series. There are prime perks that come along with the race: FREE Ts (guaranteed to pre-registered racers until we run out, so REGISTER EARLY), food, drink (includes brew), and a most definitely AWESOME atmosphere. And it's a given that the man to stack the Schwag table is no other than local Eric Squirrel Robinson, NEW owner of The Bike Stop. If you are in need of anything pre- or post race, make sure to stop by the store!
