Grand Geneva Resort — Lake Geneva, WI

From The Race Director . . .

What better place to spend a September weekend with the family than Lake Geneva?  Go for a sunset cruise, swim at one of the awesome beaches, take the kids and enjoy the shoreline of Library park, hike the lake shore path and enjoy the historic mansions, drink craft beer from Geneva Lakes Brewery, try SUP (stand up paddleboarding) at Clearwater Outdoor, rent a boat or jet ski, or try zip lining at Lake Geneva Canopy Tours. Oh and try to remember you are here for TREADFEST!

TREADFEST offers one of the “toughest” course on the WORS circuit and features the crowd pleasing Rock Garden, the infamous Colorado Heartbreaker, the serenity of the Pines, the excitement of Butch’s Playground and the fluid fast lines of The Big “O”. TREADFEST has activities for riders and families alike including: a consumer expo, TREADFEST Learn to Race Clinic, TREADFEST Kids Race, slacklines, tasty food and drink on site, TREADFEST T-shirts, the Next Door Pub Saturday night pasta feed, and all the weekend fun in beautiful Lake Geneva! The Mountain Top at The Grand Geneva Resort is now open all season for mountain bike riding and disc golf. Check out their website for more information.

In addition to TREADFEST, TREADHEAD Cycling (THC) strives to give riders exciting environment to explore the joys of riding a bike. THC aims to give the TREADHEAD spirit back to the roads and trails through avid bicycle advocacy involvement. Last year we partnered with My Team Triumph and helped to create a chapter in Lake Geneva!

Please check www.treadheadcycling.com for details, our list of sponsors and our ride calendar. All are welcome!

Treadfest_startCourse Description

It’s simple. The TREADFEST course was built by racers for racers. The course brings out the best of the Mountain Top topography as it shifts from tight, technical single track to wide open big ring double-track. The thigh burning climbs are rewarded with fast and fun descents. Hear the roar of the crowd as you finish in front of the spectator friendly Mountain Top Lodge. Enjoy!
