Camp Tesomas — Rhinelander, WI
From The Director . . .
In 1997 a Rhinelander area Fire Department with the help of several volunteers started a mountain bike race created by Bikes-N-Boards, a premier outfitter for outdoor sports. Now run by the Boy Scouts of Samoset Council, this race will help fund the world renowned Camp Tesomas facility open since 1935 where youth from around the globe have come to enjoy the Northwood’s. Camp Tesomas (Hanna Venture Base) is located only minutes north of Rhinelander, where it’s set on the shores of Crystal Lake, a beautiful spring fed lake deserving of its name. This pristine setting is perfect for mountain biking with the lake making an excellent choice for cooling down after a hard ride through the woods.
2007 marked the first year that this Mountain Bike Race was affiliated with the WORS. The race begins and ends at Camp Tesomas (Hanna Venture Base). The trail also traverses lands owned by the School District of Rhinelander, Plum Creek, Inc., and Terry Strong. We thank each of them for their cooperation in allowing this trail to exist. And a special thank you to Wayne Fish, for his dedicated hours of trail work. We are indebted to his dedication to this race. Wayne was taken from us by brain cancer and this race is now dedicated to Wayne Fish. His dream of a premier race in the Rhinelander area will live on in his honor for years to come.
The course is heavily forested, containing a mix of hardwoods and pine plantations. The soil is ideally suited for mountain biking, made up of rock, sand and clay. Rain or shine, the surface holds up well to the pounding of bike tires. The rolling terrain also creates a tough, exhilarating, yet fun bike ride.
We have cabins and campsites available during the weekend. And we are one of the only races that provide every racer with shower and bike wash facilities. And don’t forget we have the state’s largest climbing tower and zip-line open for your enjoyment with boating and other activities to keep everyone in the family happy. For more information on either the Rasta Rally or Crystal Lake Classic go to: www.samoset.org/bikerace.
Logging and ski trails through heavily forested rolling terrain create a tough, exhilarating, and fun race course with plenty of challenging singletrack mixed in to test your skills.
