2017 Couch Potato

Saturday, November 4th

Registration Open!


The Couch Potato is epic mountain biking with a short enough course to make it doable from ‘off the couch’.   Rolling over rugged mining roads, classic Pisgah single track, cursing climbs and giggling descents, this course will test your skills and desire as you explore the intoxicating terrain of the Pisgah National Forest.  Burgers, brews and a camp fire will be at the finish to comfort you after a long day in the saddle.

New for 2016, the Couch Potato has an ’18 & Under’ category! Minors must ride with a guardian and stay together through the entire race (regardless of fitness differences). Guardian must also register for the event as well.

This race is limited by the US Forest Service to 200 participants.
