Mountain biking can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. Worried about getting lost on the trails? Need more rad people to ride with? Perhaps you just want to corner better and have more fun on rides. We get it!
This one-day festival was designed with you in mind. Sign up for a custom skills clinic and make friends at your same level.
The Bike Festival is your day! Come to ride bikes, make new friends, and have fun! If you joined us the first year, you will notice the format is a bit different. Based on your amazing feedback, we are focusing on the skills clinics and maintenance classes that people loved the most.
Every body rides! This mountain bike festival is for all FTWN-B riders (Femmes, Trans, Women, Non-Binary), including Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), LGBTQ2+ folks, undocumented folks, people with disabilities, and riders of all sizes.
Come as you are and leave a better rider! Skills clinics will provide a structured learning experience in small groups for riders at all levels. The clinics will cover topics like body positioning, technique, and how to ride over obstacles. Our coaches are experienced local riders trained by a Certified Professional Mountain Bike Instructor!

BIKE MAINTENANCE CLASSES
No longer fear getting a flat! Participate in hands-on classes with professional mechanics to learn about proper bike maintenance, suspension, chains and derailleurs, common trail repairs, and how to change a flat. Bring your bike and experience the satisfaction of wrenching on your own bike!
RELAX AND RECHARGE
In addition to your bike, bring your lawn chair and enjoy each other's company. Families, partners, and friends are welcome. Visit the self-care station for a wellness boost, snap fun selfies at the photo booth, and keep your energy high with snacks and treats from some of our favorite local businesses.
We're excited to partner with Into The Woods this year to provide childcare for moms who want to shred! While you enjoy an afternoon of skills, friends and self-care, your little one(s) will have their own mini-bike festival with outdoor discovery and guided rides. Space is limited - reserve your spot now! Get more info and sign up here.
