RIRIE -- CBI Bikes is excited to announce this year’s South Fork Shred mountain bike race, where hundreds of mountain bikers of all ages and skill levels are coming together to take over Kelly Canyon and raise money for the Idaho Falls Humanitarian Center and the The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.

The South Fork Shred is a 4.5 mile cross-country course which starts and finishes at the bottom of the hill. Racers of all age levels are encouraged to come out, but this event historically caters to middle school students who are looking to pick up a new hobby during summer vacation.

This year, the event is expanding for those who can’t make it out to the race on Saturday, June 26, by introducing a new way to participate. Instead of a one-day event, families have two weeks to get out and ride together wherever they want as part of the South Fork Mountain Bike Challenge. Riders will log their miles and the winner is based on whoever accumulates the most miles at the end of the two-week period. They will also be hiding five special tags around town -- you’ll know it when you see it! Lucky riders who find them can take their tag to Tobin Restoration for a chance to win one of our grand prizes!

This event is to not only raise money for two great causes that have profound impacts on our community, but to also encourage everyone to hop on a bike and get moving, no matter your skill level. 

RACE DATE: Saturday, June 26, 2021

RACE TIME: Races start at 8 a.m.

LOCATION: Kelly Canyon Ski Resort, 5488 E Kelly Canyon Rd, Ririe, ID 83443
