Click HERE to Register!
The Ohiopyle Biking Club Poker Run is a mountain bike event that will showcase the best single track Ohiopyle has to offer. Starting at the main trailhead riders will have three to four hours to make the descent down into Ohiopyle. Which trails they take is totally up to them but they will need to stop at 5 checkpoints along the way.
Each checkpoint will be located at various points of interest on the trail system. Riders will have many different route options depending on their skill level. Riders can ride solo at their own pace or with a group of friends.
When riders get to a checkpoint they will draw a card from a deck and a volunteer will mark their scorecard with the card suit and rank. When all the riders make it down the mountain to our final checkpoint they will have 5 cards marked on their scorecard, this will form their poker hand. There will be prizes for the top 3 hands and worst hand.
No poker skills needed, our volunteers will check the cards and declare a winner.
Come have some fun and support our club and watershed on this awesome multi-sport weekend!
