TRACK STAND COMPETITION . FRIDAY
The Great Western Bicycle Rally track stand competition takes place on Friday evening. Yes, this is during the beer tasting. Best not to mix the two or you'll wobble into last place! Everyone managing more than 5 seconds gets a prize and the overall winner walks away with a trophy. Entry included in Rally fee.
ANNUAL DAVE SMITH MEMORIAL TIME TRIAL . SATURDAY
Some train for this all year. Others have accidentally wound up on the route and won. Whatever, the 5 mile Great Western Bicycle Rally Time Trial is fast and furious and loads of fun! This event is held annually in memory of Dave Smith. More details here. Entry included in Rally fee.
GIRO DI PASO KOM AND QOM . SUNDAY
The Giro di Paso King of the Mountain and Queen of the Mountain competition is always a blast. Thanks to Dude Girl for providing the winners jerseys! We'll be offering this again in 2017. More information here.
FAMILY MILES COMPETITION . ALL WEEKEND
The rules for this are simple. Ride lots and take part in the fun! Mileage points are awarded for miles ridden and participation in activities such as the Paso-Port competition, the Bike Roadeo, the Track Stand Competition and the Star Farms Ride (plus other actitivies we may add later). Entry included in Rally fee.
PASO-PORT COMPETITION . ALL WEEKEND
If you want a chance to win some great prizes enter our Paso-port competition. You'll be issued a blank Paso-Port that you can get stamped at various locations around Paso Robles.
