Photos/Results: Hog Bay Mountain Bike Race

February 26, 2013

The sixth race of the Bicycle Works Mountain Bike racing series was held at Hog Bay Park in Southampton on Sunday [Feb 24] under mainly fair but windy conditions.

The 60 competitors were challenged by the toughest course on the island. Hog Bay Park is a series of relentless climbs and technical down-hills, which threw a few of the racers off course.

    It’s great for these bikers to be able to use Hog Bay.
    Now, I hope that someone will address the significant trail erosion in the park that is being accelerated because of the trails being ripped up by the knobby tires.

      Loquatz They have not been riding those trails that long so its not their knobby tires hurting anything, Get a LIFE!!! I am so tired of people like you knocking healthy family fun time. You just complain to complain if you are unhappy with your life do no knock others for an ounce of happiness. Maybe you would rather they be sitting on the wall outside your house?

    Oooh my, the uniquely local counter rant!
    I am quite happy for them to use the park – but yes, their tires (and horses) are definitely accelerating the erosion. I walk the park very frequently. There are things that can be done to halt that, while still making the trails accessible to different user types.

      Hmm a Local Rant, I take it you have complained several times before just as I thought. Horse’s travel and pedal bike travel on this Island where the only means of transportation before our time. Casuarina trees and Norfolk pines tend to do lots of damage with erosion have you complained to anyone about that? Unfortunately nothing in life will ever please everybody but I hope you find your own little peace!

    Another great days racing in one of Bermudas beautiful parks! Kudos to Parks Dept for allowing these races to happen, and to the people at The Maritime Museum for last weeks unique course (unforgettable!)
    @ Loquats. What are your suggestions? asphalt? Mulch? Turfstones? Please enlighten.
    All in all it really is good that some fun is still to be had on our little rock!

    All the trails at hog bay are still easily walkable. People have been riding there for years. Don’t think there is anything wrong with riding there. erosion happens at every park not much to do unless you have a committee to tend to the trails. I think personally gov. should have a trail committee and open up more trails so that we can have more places to ride walk and take our dogs…
