SIMBS families, join us for a mountain biking scavenger hunt - the Bunny Hop!

Guardian participation and supervision of children required. Valid SIMBS memberships required. Registration closes April 13.

Routes

To cater to different levels of riding experience, two routes are planned. Both will be flagged and may be previewed on Trailforks via the links below. Due to event time constraints, participants may only choose one route to ride.

Event Schedule

Unsupported Event & First Aid Information

Guardian participation and supervision of children is required. Guardians, please be prepared with nutrition, hydration and tools as desired. No on-course mechanical support or food/drink stations will be provided. First aid will be available but, bringing a few of your own bandaids or other supplies just in case certainly wouldn’t hurt.

Parking, Spectating & Pets

Event parking will be available within the main Hartland lots and roadside alongside Hartland Avenue, with tires off pavement and clear of residential driveways. To reduce vehicle volume, please consider carpooling or choosing an active mode of transportation to/from the event. 

Spectators are welcome to hike or ride to areas of the course. Please stick to sanctioned, established trails if doing so; being respectful and aware of other park users, along with the delicate flora and fauna.
