Wirth on Wednesdays (WOW) presented by Ziegler Cat
A spotlight shines bright on the Loppet Foundation-managed singletrack trails at Theodore Wirth Park with the return of the popular spring and summer mountain bike race series. Meet us at The Trailhead for the 2021 Wirth on Wednesdays (WOW) events presented by Ziegler Cat.
The Trailhead at Theodore Wirth Park has some of the most accessible trails around, including the popular Conundrum, Area 36, and newly developed 45 North loops, all linked by the amazing paved trail network composed of the Grand Rounds, Theodore Wirth Parkway, and Luce Line.
