2014 Coast Hills Classic Mountain Bike Race
Newport is bringing mountain bike racing back to the Oregon coast!
We have an awesome course designed with gorgeous ocean views, meadows, sick down hill, gnarly single track, killer climbs, and what’s sure to be a wet & muddy course!
This event is brought to life by a public-private partnership in the true spirit of community. Bike Newport, the Newport News-times and other local volunteers are volunteering alongside staff from the Newport Parks and Recreation Department to breath new life into this old race, formerly known as the Ben Eder Memorial.
Proceeds from the event will go towards the youth programs scholarship fund at the Newport Recreation Center. Which allows children from economically disadvantaged households the opportunity to participate in a number of fantastic programs.
This year’s race has been entered into the Oregon MTB XC Series. The series is made up of 10 races starting on April 6th and ending June 29th. The Coast Hills Classic Race is race #3 in the series. Each race in the series will be raffling off a Jamis Bike Frame that is worth $900.
