Group Rides & Events
Join us for a group ride! All year round we host hundreds of rides and events for riders of all skill levels. We missed riding with everyone in 2020 due to the Global Pandemic, but we are excited to return to group riding soon in 2021! Check out our group ride schedule below to find your perfect ride, then stay tuned for an announcement on when Group Rides will resume. We are hoping to begin riding in May, but we do not have a set date at this time. We will continue to watch COVID numbers in our area as we make this decision with hopes of seeing them continue to drop before we begin our rides. Continue to check here for updates as well as our Facebook and Instagram pages.

Take A Kid Mountain Biking
On the last Thursday of the month in June, July, and August we host Take A Kid Mountain Biking. At this event we will head to a local trail and host a group ride for kids and their family members through that particular trail system. This is a great way to introduce kids to mountain biking, as well as other family members. We offer a select number of bikes for kids to use if they do not have a bike of their own. Follow our Facebook and Instagram accounts for more information leading up to these events.
