We will be doing a sneak peek for NEABA's next new event, the Coldwater Crush. This is a challenging, 30 mile endurance race (See Course Route). This is a Sunday morning event but don't worry, if this isn't for you, we will still have the Poker Ride and other fun activities. The fastest racer will get a special piece of Merch.


    • Friday McClellan Group Ride: A fun, all-ages ride @3:00PM. This ride takes place at the near by Fort McClellan Trails (Get Directions Here). Compared to Coldwater, this fun system is known for being flowy, fast and non-technical. New trails have been added so be sure to visit even if you can't make this ride.

    • Friday Night Ride: Organizes at Zinn Park at 6:00 PM for a 6:30 PM departure. Don’t forget your lights! This is a festival highlight and one of the best ways to enjoy Coldwater trails. Headlights required and taillights are handy for the road section back to the party.

    • Saturday Guided Rides: Meet at 10:00 AM at the Coldwater Trailhead (Get Directions Here). We will have rides to suite all skill levels, a women’s only ride, and a kids ride. New this year is the Funduro/Black Diamond ride. For this big ride, plan to spend several hours out on the mountain and ride the favorite downhill sections and lines Enduro style.

  • SCAVENGER HUNT:   This is an all weekend event that showcases the cycling and culture of Calhoun County. Upon check-in with a scavenger hunt director, you will earn raffle tickets for Sunday's swag draw! Collect stickers, take pictures and answer questions, and do random bike stuff to earn your tickets. A scavenger hunt list will be provided at the registration table on Friday.

  • POKER RIDE:  This favorite event will be organized from the Coldwater Trailhead on Sunday morning at 10:00 AM. Check in with the poker ride director under the tent for directions. Winning hands will win raffle tickets for swag.
