Calling all cyclists! Pump up those tires and get ready to race. The Chainbuster Mountain Bike Race is back at Arrowhead Park at Lake Tobesofkee (2800 Arrowhead Drive) on Saturday, March 26.  

Registration and packet pickup starts at 6:00 a.m. that day, the six-hour race begins at 10:00 a.m., and the three-hour race begins at 10:10 a.m.  

You must register by Sunday, March 13 to receive a t-shirt, and online registration closes on Wednesday, March 16. Click here to sign up for the race.

New parts of the bike trail at Arrowhead Park were officially opened in April 2019, thanks to voter-approved SPLOST funds. It’s a mile of flow trail, which provides people with a path that includes hills, bumps, and sharp turns, and was designed by Flowmotion Trail Builders. There are also more than 12 miles of bikeable trails within Arrowhead Park. Check out a photo album from the ribbon-cutting event on our Facebook page.
