This is no Monkey Business


The Croom 35/50 will not be an in-person coordinated event this year due to restrictions in place for Covid. Never fear... We've put together Mother Croom's Monkey Business as part of SWAMP’s 2020-2021 Virtual Challenge Series FUNDRAISER. All challenges are self-supported. Large Group rides are not encouraged. Please be socially responsible and follow CDC guidelines at all times.

What’s New you ask?


  • No directional signs for the full 50mile course- Turn by turn voice prompts instead.


  • Who Did IT Faster? - See for yourself with our monthly challenge leaderboard.


  • Don’t care about speed? Just see how many riders join the course.


  • You Pick the Date - Ride with your friends on the day that you choose. Weekend, weekday, your choice.

  • Design your own ride. Choose the 50-mile voice prompted turn by turn or choose the Ride the Park map with no voice commands and ride as many miles as you want. Create your own challenge!


And then there is………. drum roll please………….

Monkey Business- Now that’s new!

Feed your techno junkie and take a ride down Drunken Lane. If the Monkey isn't enough for ya, a few pedals down the trial there is Hooch, Moonshine, Lefty, a few other stops topped off by Cherry Bomb. Session, sample, jump and pump til your heart’s content before you display your best self on the leaderboard. More fun than yes, a barrel of monkeys.

Have it your way!

Before you ride the distance challenges...

1. It is no secret that there are extra demands attached to riding distances. Please be sure to carry extra water to stay hydrated and extra snacks for fuel.

2. If you are riding with a friend, consider traveling in separate cars. Park one at the second parking lot, loaded with extra hydration and fuel. Drive the other car to the starting line.

3. Also stock some first aid supplies and don't leave home without letting someone know to expect to hear from you at a designated time.

3. Have the necessary emergency numbers handy. There are usually contact details available at the Tucker Hill kiosk.

You will receive an email after you register on MemberPlanet. Please make sure to retain it as it has important information for registering on the leaderboard!
