The MN Rusty Ride is please to enter into a partnership with Minneapolis based alternative cycling apparel company, TWIN SIX. TWIN SIX has agreed to become the presenting sponsor of the 25 mile mountain bike race, ride, tour event. With this partnership the 25 mile event will be increased to a 26 mile event and be branded The Twin Six Two-6.
The Twin Six Two-6 will begin at 10:00 AM on Saturday, August 18, 2012 out of Morningside Park in Ironton, MN at the same time as the 50 mile event. The course will be comprised of a mix of Cuyuna Singletrack, fire roads, and some pavement to create a 26 mile loop. Awards will be given 3 deep according to class. Please visit www.mnrustyride.com for registration information and additional event information.
The hope is to create an event that is challenging yet appealing for all different skill levels. Placing this event on one of MORC’s world-class trails gives riders an opportunity to test their endurance and fortitude but also have fun.
Twin Six is a Minneapolis based alternative cycling apparel company founded by two designers who love to ride and believe that the time is overdue for better cycling jersey graphics. They believe that the gear we pull on is a statement of our style, identity and self. Twin Six jerseys carry graphics with a fashion DNA. Styles that spring from real graphic trends, not the predictable regurgitation of last year’s predictable regurgitation. Visit www.twinsix.com to view their products and more information.
MORC/IMBA is a not-for-profit volunteer organization dedicated to safeguarding the future of mountain biking in Minnesota through the promotion of responsible riding, establishment and maintenance of mountain biking trails, and preservation of Minnesota’s natural resources. To date MORC maintains over 75 miles of trail in the Twin Cities metro area.
The Trails are designated as IMBA Bronze Ride Center. The first in the nation, and now 1 of 6 designated Ride Centers in the country. According to the MN DNR website, the Cuyuna Mountain Bike Trail System dips, dives and weaves across more than 800 acres of Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area. With over 30 purpose-built routes to choose from, everyone from beginner to pro can enjoy the breath-taking rides and overlooks. The trails are enhanced by the deep-red soil, turquoise mine lakes, and white bark of the aspen and birch trees. When taking a break from the exhilarating descents, mountain bikers can watch for bald eagles, red-tailed hawks, beavers and other wildlife.
