Black Bear Rampage

Black Bear Rampage

Date: Sunday, September 15th of 2024

Registration is open! 

*Deadline for bags to arrive by Race Day has passed*

A second bag order will be placed after the race so you can still order more bags or customize! If you are registering between now and September 15 your bag will arrive at the bike shop mid-November and will be available for pickup or ship at that time (shipping fee not included).


The Black Bear Rampage course is 40 (or 20) miles of the happiest singletrack that you have ever rolled. There are 5 awesome SAGs on the course & volunteers at every turn to keep racers hammering in the right direction.  Our medical response staff are ready for almost anything that might happen & the folks from the Ocoee Dam Deli have a long history of feeding us like we are family. The schwag this year might be the best ever with a new gear bag built by Americans on US soil!
