Visit Hot Springs delivers the Gudrun Mountain Bike Festival for its second year at the beautiful Northwoods Trails on November 13-15!
We will kick off the festival with our family friendly, non-competitive Slow Roll Fun Ride through Downtown Hot Springs at 5:00PM, Friday the 13th! Participants are encouraged to dress in costumes…Viking costumes at that!
Saturday, November the 14th, will be a full day of competitions beginning with the Mini and Full Enduro races that morning.
Our most spectator friendly and loved event, the Güdrun Jump Jam sponsored by Red Light Roastery, will start at 3:00 Saturday afternoon. Spectators will watch riders show off their flare on the Cedar Glades Skills Park jumps located at the Cedar Glades Park Trailhead. Contestants will be catching air to pull off tricks like double backflips, 360 spins, tail whips, and more.
The final day of the festival will be a full day of the long running Attila the Hun Cross Country Mountain Bike Race. Attila the Hun XC Race originated on the now Northwoods Waterworks Property in 1992. After 9/11 the race moved to the Charlton Campground area and has since found its way back home to Cedar Glades Park where, for the 2nd year in a row, they will use it’s birthplace, the Northwoods Waterworks Trails, in the course. We are excited to have the introduction of categories for Rookie, e-bike, and tandem bike riders in the line-up this year.
