Seasons of Rothrock Adventures

4 Part Race Series

Does the idea of exploring the natural sylvan beauty of Pennsylvania on two wheels excite you? If so, we invite you to discover magnificent Rothrock State Forest on gravel roads and singletrack trails while building lasting friendships in a passionate and supportive community along the way. Come see what Happy Valley and the grassroots cycling community here have to offer.

Seasons of Rothrock Race Series is a grouping of four races that capture the grandeur of Rothrock State Forest in all four seasons through the disciplines of gravel and mountain bike racing. Join us for one, or all four. Spend an afternoon pushing your limit on challenging, gravel roads and fun singletrack. By participating, you’ll be supporting a community that emphasizes the fun and social aspects of racing while creating local events that belong on the national stage.
