Description

The Palos Meltdown is the Chicagoland area's premier mountain bike event. With racing for all ages and abilities, this event draws riders from all over the region. The Meltdown is held as a fundraiser for Chicago Area Mountain Bikers (CAMBr -  a registered 501(c)(3) organization) to help build and maintain mountain bike trails in Chicagoland. The race is held within the Forest Preserve District of Cook County's Palos Forest Preserves, on an extensive singletrack trail system built and maintained by CAMBr, just half an hour outside of Chicago. The trails are flowy, fun and built with all levels of rider in mind. The event strives to keep a fun family atmosphere while providing a both challenging and fun race experience for first timers to the seasoned elite athlete.
