TNR All Abilities
TNR (Tuesday Night Ride) is a social-paced, no-drop and inclusive ride where all are welcome. These mountain bike rides are around 4-8 miles long and primarily on green and blue single or doubletrack. These rides are meant to encourage riders to stay interested in our sport of mountain biking and to expose riders to the beautiful trail systems our area has to offer.
Intermediate mountain bike rides will be around 6-8 miles, 5-7 MPH pace and a good mix of green, blue, and black trails. These rides are intended to provide more of a challenge. You should be confident with transitioning from smooth to rougher, narrower trails with small obstacles, and have the ability to maneuver through steep technical climbs and descents.
Advanced mountain bike rides will be around 8-15 miles, 5-8 MPH pace over a variety of technical trails. These rides are typically more enduro-oriented. You should be confident riding all types of trails at a fairly good pace.
Gravel rides are a social-paced, no-drop and inclusive ride where all are welcome. There is a mix of asphalt, rail trail, double track and some single track depending on the location. Approximate length is generally 15-20 miles and can be done on a gravel or hardtail mountain bike.
Intro to MTB Series
Our Intro to MTB rides are held every Spring and consist of 6 progressive rides once per week. They start with the easiest terrain and gradually increase to more technical terrain and longer lengths. These are great instructional rides for beginners or anyone looking to get back into the sport. Come out and enjoy the experience, learn and have fun!
