to everyone who participated in 2013!
Feeney Park Foundation and ride organizers
extend a sincere "Thank You!" to the riders,
sponsors, as well as everyone else who
participated in the 2013 ride helping to
make it another success. The Feeney Park
Foundation and Board look forward to yet
another year of supporting this wonderful
recreational facility benefiting the entire
We welcome you to the 2014
Mr. Frog's Wild Ride SEVENTH annual
foothills biking event benefiting youth
sports in our area.
Mark your calendars now for April
19, 2014 to come to Calaveras County to bicycle through the beautiful Sierra Nevada foothills. All proceeds benefit Feeney Park, a non-profit community sports and recreational facility in Murphys,
offering youth soccer and baseball fields, skate park, walking trails, picnic areas,
a disc golf course, plus an amphitheater.
Wildflower-full April is a great time to get into the frontier spirit evoked
by Mark Twain in his “Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.”
We are showing off the southwest end of our county and have even
included a TIME TRIAL in the middle of the longer ride. We are not changing the route this year because of
the great feedback we had from the riders last year. Both rides will leave you hungry for that
homemade BBQ at the finish in Feeney Park. All the climbing and zippy downhills will be there without the rigors of the rough roads of past Mr. Frog’s Wild Rides. The long route will include a ride to New Melones Lake and feature a short time trial in the middle if desired. Winner of the time trial will be awarded a prize at the conclusion of the ride.
There is one mile of gravel in the long ride--that is perfectly rideable--so one can pretend briefly to be a randonneur at the Paris Roubaix.
Elevation gain is 4436 ft. for the 100K and 2461 ft. for the 50K ride.
Come join us April
for our springtime ride in the beautiful Sierra Foothills!
Everyone from kids
to grandparents are welcome to join in the fun whether riding or not. Spend
Sunday wine tasting, hiking, enjoying the sights and history, shopping, or
just relaxing. There will great food, live music, and much more.

This ride is meant for the safe enjoyment of our participants. Every participant should train for the challenges presented by that rider's chosen route. Use of CPSC approved helmets is required. The California Vehicle Code must be followed, and courtesy to other riders and drivers is expected. Although these two routes are paved,
except for one mile of gravel in the 100K ride--that is perfectly rideable, much of the traveling is on back roads that have undergone much spot patching, leaving irregularities and bumps. Potholes happen. Ride organizers and sponsors are not responsible for the condition of the pavement surface. Every rider should carry personal identification and spare tubes, a tire pump and a patch kit. Waivers
must be signed on race day.
