The United States may be the first nation in history to voluntarily surrender its traditional culture and national identity to other peoples.

Another Great Weekend of Bike Riding in Prescott's Whiskey Off-Road

Prescott, Arizona, puts out the welcome mat for Mountain Bikers this weekend. 

A One time opportunity to save 25% on event registration for the Whiskey Off Road!

(TUCSON, ARIZ.) January 4, 2016 – In anticipation of its continually expanding Off-Road Series of community-oriented, family friendly mountain bike events in 2016, Epic Rides today announced Community Discount Night, an opportunity for nearby residents in each of the three host communities to receive a 25 percent discount on event registration.

Held from 5:30p-8:30p on Wednesday, January 6, 2016 in Prescott, Ariz., Grand Junction, Colo. and Carson City, Nev., Community Discount Night will provide locals a social gathering to kick off the upcoming mountain bike season while sipping back select beers from Sierra Nevada Brewing and other locally crafted beverages.

Since the inaugural Whiskey Off-Road was held in Prescott in 2004, the Off-Road Series has grown into a three-day outdoor experience held in vibrant communities with a passion for healthy living and outdoor recreation. Part of what has made the Whiskey Off-Road and the Grand Junction Off-Road premier mountain bike events is the enthusiasm, energy and pride of each communities residents. And the excitement generated by locals with the debut of the Carson City Off-Road next June promises to make it an equally big success.

“The Off-Road Series events can’t happen without the support of our host communities,” said Todd Sadow, Epic Rides president. “Whether descending along the towering Thumb Butte in Prescott, taking in the massive Book Cliffs near Grand Junction or witnessing the remarkable emerald beauty of Lake Tahoe above Carson City, the Off-Road Series builds local pride in its host communities, and we aim to foster that pride by offering residents special pricing on our events.”

Epic Rides encourages local riders, clubs and social media mountain bike groups to spread the word on Community Discount Night, as the only requirement to receiving the discount is being at the event in person. Attendees can register for any and all three events for the same 25 percent discount. Friends and family who are not present are not eligible for Community Discount Night, sorry.
