York 38 Special Bike Rides

Saturday, 08/21/2021

We're BACK! Your favorite ride is back in person this year, with a virtual option as well!

Thirty-eight miles along spectacular scenery, through the Big Belt Mountains, beautiful canyons and three creeks! This amazing ride includes varied terrain on gravel, asphalt road, and single track. Challenge yourself or take it easy and enjoy the views!

Bear Trap and Trout Creek routes - A challenging and exciting mountain bike ride covering 38 or 76 miles of breathtaking scenery. On the York 38 Special or the Spirit of 76, you will gain 3,000 vertical feet from lowest point of the ride (Nelson), traveling mainly on dirt roads and single track. Six Aid stations with our famous homemade goodies & porta potties are spread throughout the course.

Lucky 13 Family Ride - The Lucky 13 route is 13 miles, approximately 6.5 miles along York Road, from York to Vigilante Campground, around the campground loop, and back to York. About half of the route is paved. An Aid station & porta potty available on this route also!

VIRTUAL RIDE! Can't make race day but still want to participate? Ride (or run or walk!) the York 38 or Lucky 13 route or any 38/13 mile route between June 12th and August 15th and submit your time for special prize categories! All activities must be recorded and verified using your choice of GPS tracking app or software (Strava, Garmin Connect, Suunto, etc). Riders must submit their times via the Results Tab by 11:59pm on August 16, 2021 to be considered eligible for awards (details to follow).

The York 38 Special is more than a great ride - it is the major fundraiser for York Fire Rescue. Your registrations and donations go to helping us fund our department and procure essential equipment.
