Rides - Events - Classes

Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around our area. Rides require, at minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and your biggest smile! Many rides are held subject to weather. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements, too. We'll see you out there — and have fun!

From here riders will enter the trails leading to Twister which is a fast, flowy, and you guessed it, twisty trail. Although not considered to be a technical trail, keep your eyes open for the few fast turns and rooty sections as well as a few steep drops and inclines to keep you on your toes. This trail will leave students exiting the trails with a huge smile. Saturday student-athletes will run the course clockwise and Sunday it will run in reverse!
