The folks at the WFRA would like to invite you all to the 3rd annual Bikes, Brews, and Burgers Poker “Chip” Run. (A poker run, with a twist) The ride will kick off from CCC Camp traversing 13ish miles of wooded trails in Winona State Forest.
Anyone with a bike is welcome to attend this non-competitive event. This one is purely for the fun of it.

This year’s event will feature Brews from Copper City Brewing Company.

Ride a fabulous 13-mile course featuring non-technical single track, gravel roads, and simply great trails. No serious hills or technical terrain will be on the course.

The course will open at 10:00AM, the last participant must depart by 11:00AM. Riders will be following a well-marked course, stopping at designated checkpoints along the way.  The course begins and ends at CCC camp, where burgers and assorted bbq foods will be offered. Registration fee includes 1 beer. BYO beverage if desired.

Bikes of all types are welcome! Per DEC, Class 1 E-bikes are allowed on state forest trails. The definition of Class 1 E-bike which is used for State Purposes is a bicycle with an electric motor that provides assistance only when pedaling and ceases to aid pedaling when 20 mile per hour has been reached.

Your registration includes:

How will the Poker “CHIP” Ride work?
At each checkpoint, a participant will reach into a bag and draw 3 chips.

  1. The bag at each checkpoint contains an equal number of chips, 3 different colors. (red, white, blue)
  2. The colors drawn will be stamped on the participants score sheet (sample image below) by the event official at the checkpoint
  3. Once everyone is back (or most everyone), point values of each color will be determined
  4. The participant with the highest number of points will win.
  5. In the case of a tie in points, participants will cut a deck of cards. Highest card drawn will prevail.
  6. Prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and so on until we run out of prizes.

So….no one knows how good their “hand” is, until they have returned and values are determined.
