Not till you stop do you realize how high you’ve ridden and see the view overlooking K-town to the north and Smokies to south. “I did it!” you think, smiling. Other group members start appearing around the turn that leads to the hill’s top. You cheer them on, giving them a high five as they reach you.

After a 10 minute break, the group divides into two groups, each with their own instructor who knows the trails and helps make each person become a ‘rad agent’ on a mountain bike.

Based upon experience levels, we’ll divide into different group, from never mountain biked before to those looking to improve how they ride berms, downed trees, and rock gardens.

This trip is for you if:
don’t have time to plan a trip and pick the trails. You just want to show up.
keep hearing about how fun mountain biking is and want to give it a try.
want to learn how to ride, whether for the first time or ride over logs and through rock gardens.

This trip is not for you if:
you don’t know how to ride a bike.
want to ride alone.
