RHINELANDER - Mountain bikers will get one of their first chances to race in the Northwoods this weekend.

The Rhinelander Area Silent Trails Association (RASTA) will host the RASTA Rally this Saturday.

Bikers will travel on the trails at Washburn Lake west of Rhinelander, including challenging single-track trails.

"We're hoping people aren't intimidated. Mountain biking can sound intimidating, but we're hoping folks come out and give it a try. We have something for all levels, and the registration money goes to a really good cause," says RASTA spokesperson Suzanne Flory.

The money helps fund the maintenance work RASTA does on cross country ski, snowshoe, biking, and hiking trails in the area.

This year's RASTA Rally will be at Washburn Lake for the first time.

"It's a little more challenging single-track for folks that are looking for that excitement, but all level riders are going to find something enjoyable out here," Flory says.

Bikers can register at the race on Saturday morning.

Races start at 1pm.
