The Wildcat Epic Bike Race is a 2-Day Mountain Biking Experience in the Picturesque Shawangunk Mountains, organized and designed by local New Paltz cycling enthusiasts.


 This year we will be introducing some great new course options during the Wildcat weekend, with the option of doing the original Wildcat Epic: two days of 50 miles each. Or on the Sunday(August 11th) take on the only 100 miler in NY, the Wildcat 100 ( recently recognized by NUE series as a 2013 Candidate race, see below). Also available  will be the Wildcat 50 and Wildcat 25 on the Saturday (August 11th).


The WC 100 will be both days of Wildcat riding merged into a one day Epic Challenge where you can expect private sweet single track, only available for organized events,  double track on the Apple farms and unique access to the the Gunk's Ridge on historic carriage roads with spectacular views of the ridge and the valley below. The Wildcat offers the opportunity to race through the most beautiful spots that upstate New York has to offer, including William's lake, the Larsen loop, Minnewaska State Park Preserve and Mohonk Preserve, home to the Shawangunk Mountains


Each day competitors will be treated to a remarkable racecourse, fully stocked aid stations, catered meals, and great hospitality. Wildcat Epic is fun for the whole family, so bring your loved ones and make a weekend of it.
