In partnership with Bicycles Inc., we are hosting Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day Oct. 1. The event is a local event based on the International Mountain Biking Association’s TKMBD initiative to encourage communities around the country to ride mountain bikes with kids.

This event will teach children — adults are welcome — basic mountain biking skills, what goes into building and maintaining trails and basic bike maintenance.  And of course, we’ll lead the kids on a ride along the easier parts of the trail.

What: Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day
When: 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1
Where: Gateway Park

We’ll primarily be on the easiest section of the trail that almost any bicycle can handle. If there’s enough interest, we can take a group on more advanced sections. There will be hot dogs and refreshments.

This year’s theme is based on International Mountain Biking Association’s four tenants: Speak, Build, Respect Ride. All children must wear a helmet to participate. Please make sure bikes are in good condition to ride with functional brakes and no flat tires. Adults are not required to ride.

Have questions? Shoot us an email at or leave us a comment on our Facebook event, where we’ll post details and updates.
