Mr. Frogs Wild Ride
Mr. Frog's Wild Ride annual foothills biking event benefiting youth sports in our area. Mark your calendars to come to Calaveras County to bicycle through the beautiful Sierra Nevada foothills. Wildflower-full April is a great time to get into the frontier spirit evoked by Mark Twain in his “Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County".
The long route will include a ride to New Melones Lake and feature a short time trial in the middle if desired. Winner of the time trial will be awarded a prize at the conclusion of the ride. There is one mile of gravel in the long ride--that is perfectly rideable--so one can pretend briefly to be a randonneur at the Paris Roubaix. Elevation gain is 4436 ft. for the 100K and 2461 ft. for the 50K ride.
This is our biggest fundraiser of the year where every dollar collected goes directly in to supporting the park. Feeney Park is the only facility of its kind along the Highway 4 corridor of Calaveras County serving hundreds, if not thousands, of youth and adult athletes from Copperopolis to Bear Valley. In addition, Feeney Park offers unique opportunities for casual recreation with its walking trails, picnic areas, skate park, disc golf course and music venue.
