Bike Race? Road or Dirt? The place to be...

If you race bikes, road and/or mountain, the Catskills are the place to be this weekend. You have two multi-day events in both road racing and mountain biking.

The Tour of the Catskills starts tomorrow with a time trial and then road races on some of the most scenic roads in all of America on Saturday and Sunday.

Sunday sees the return of the climb up Devil's Kitchen, the climb rises over 1400 feet over 3 miles and includes sections of more than a 22% grade.

If you are partial to the dirt and knobby tires, the Wildcat Epic 2-day race takes place just outside New Paltz, NY. While the course is nothing like those you'll find at ski resorts, it is a great route through some beautiful land with plenty of short climbs.
