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 before, you may know how taxing 2, 90 minute clinics of riding can be. Consider signing up for ONE of the skills clinics and then round out your day with maintenance classes, shopping merchants in our Vendor Village, or getting a massage at the Self-Care station.
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 massage or visit a nutritionist, or grab your friends to snap a selfie in the 360 booth, enjoy lunch from Sweet Caribou and bring your water bottle to fill up from the AWWU tank.
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.
