ULLR BIKE January 12, 2019
This year’s course returns to the Gold Run Nordic Center, located at 200 Clubhouse Drive, Breckenridge, CO.
This was the site of Ullr Bike for the first 3 years. The staff at Gold Run are maintaining Fat-bike Dedicated Trails! And they are so awesome that we are going to move our course from the previously announced venue to Gold Run.
We wouldn’t make a switch this late in the game unless we were 100% certain that the quality of the experience is improved. In short, we tether ourselves to our #1 Value at Maverick Sports…”Where the Athlete is First”!
Gold Run Nordic Center has Borealis Bikes (nice ones) for rent right there at the venue.
