The Paul Bunyan Forest Riders motorcycle club is hard at work cleaning trails for what’s shaping up to be an incredible race this year. For 2020 the Enduro is being held on the West side of Hwy 64. The event is a restart format, with resets between each test. The race start and camping is at the Stompin Grounds campground, just north of Akeley on Hwy 64. Look for the Blue Stompin Grounds sign, as well as Orange arrows. There is also first-come-first-served dispersed camping available at the Main Martineau OHM Trail Head. Social distancing requirements are in effect for all camping areas within the Paul Bunyan State Forest. You can learn more about dispersed camping here- https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/state_forests/dispersed-camping.html

Our Adult Race Trail Boss is Curt Plazk, and our Youth Race Trail Boss is Keith Wiger. Please contact them if you’d like to help our club before and during this event.
