The 7th annual Treasure Valley Rally (TVR) presents miles of real cross country mountain biking in the heart of Massachusetts. Lots of singletrack, much of it purpose built for mountain biking, decent climbs, plenty of technical challenge, and a grassroots vibe coupled with swimming, food, and races for all ages means a super fun day out for a great charitable cause.
The 1,600 acre Treasure Valley Scout Reservation in the center of Massachusetts is rarely open to the public yet offers a solid trail network that's been honed for MTB over the last 8 years by riders from the Team BUMS mountain bike club. We strive to provide a challenge appropriate to your ability with several course variants. The 10 mile main race loop will push you and your bike to your limits as the laps add up, but we have a shortened lap for novices, a much shorter lap for youth/first timers, and even a free small kids race through the woods.
What's new this year?
- A SATURDAY race in the SPRING, both firsts for us!
- More course enhancements for sure.
- Pre-registration is a little different this year:
-- T-shirt cutoff is April 15th so we can get the right sizes (no more guessing and getting stuck with lots of extras)
-- Sliding price scale: the earlier you register, the more you save. Price started at $23 in Feb. March 1 it increased to $25, April 1: $27, May 1: $29, race day: $35
- 2013 was a tough year for us but the survey results (http://www.teambums.com/tvr/tvr13_survey_final.pdf) we collected told us we have a lot of fans. Let's make 2014 huge!
- 2014 is also the first year that Treasure Valley will offer a MTB specific camp week to Boy Scouts. This is made possible by volunteers from Team BUMS, Bicycle Concepts, and NEMBA.
This race primarily benefits the Mohegan Council Boy Scouts of America (http://www.mohegancouncilbsa.org/) in Worcester, MA and their Treasure Valley Scout Reservation. We also contribute to the attending fire departments who provide emergency coverage. Any other money raised also helps grow the trail network and make the race better every year.
