Bell Joy Ride – Rocky Knob Ride – Season Finale
Sep 30 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Bell Joy Ride - Rocky Knob Ride - Season Finale @ Rocky Knob Mountain Bike Park | Beech Mountain | North Carolina | United States

The Bell Joy Rides are mountain bike rides for women looking for both camaraderie and a little challenge in a fun and supportive environment.

Our rides are pressure-free and worry-free. We make sure every rider is comfortable with the pace of the group and that no section of trail is beyond their ability level.

Our monthly Joy Rides are designed to suit all skill levels. The focus of our Joy Rides is simple: discover new places and make new connections while having fun on two wheels!

Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day
Oct 6 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day @ Lake James State Park MTB Trails | Nebo | North Carolina | United States

IMBA Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day will be celebrated on October 6th at 1 pm, location TBD. Join the Alliance for a fun morning of riding dedicated to the kids!

TKMBD is an annual celebration held officially on the first Saturday of October. The event, developed and coordinated by IMBA, strives to encourage communities around the world to join together and ride mountain bikes with youth. Over the years we’ve had tens of thousands of kids participate from across the globe, including: Italy, Australia, South Africa, Canada, Malaysia, and Mexico. Informal or formal, one child or 100 children, TKMBD celebrates the joy of riding in the dirt.

Besides being good, healthy fun, the goal is to develop a connection between kids and the natural world around them. Today’s children are tomorrow’s land managers and politicians — future decision-makers for important matters like recreation and access to public lands. How different might our current access landscape look today if previous generations of policy makers had grown up riding bikes on natural-surface trails?
An adult group ride when the kids’ ride commences (around 3 pm).

To register a kid, or if you are interested in helping with the event (or need more information at all), email the Alliance at info@ridenwnctrails.com.
