Dave Jensen of Fergus Falls rolls through the river on a hot day to claim victory in the 2010 Black's Grove mountain bike race near Wadena. The race will be held again this year on Sunday, Aug. 28.

A friend and I drove out near Wadena after work yesterday to ride the Black’s Grove mountain bike trails.

I was pretty impressed with the challenging and fun course. The creators of the trails put a lot of thought and time into their masterpiece.

I’d recommend anyone close to the area who’s interested in the sport to check it out. Even those who aren’t too technically skilled (like me) will find some joy in it. There’s a great combination of single track and ski trails – and plenty of obstacles.

On Sunday, Aug. 28, the folks out there are hosting a race. A friend of mine did the race last year and had a blast – actually, he won. Who wouldn’t have fun winning? But, really, even those who won’t be taking the cake will no doubt have some fun in a beautiful outdoor setting. For more information on the trail and the race, check out www.blacksgrove.com.
