Bays Final Logo Brown

Ever thought about mountain biking, but don’t know where to begin? Want to improve your skills? This March, Beginning Mountain Biking returns to Bays Mountain to teach you basic hands-on information and help you become a better mountain biker.

Mountain bikes are a perfect way to exercise and connect with nature, but it can be a little intimidating when you’re a beginner. There are a few things every mountain biker wishes someone had told them when they were starting out. During each session, you’ll be able to ask questions, speak to experienced riders, and learn a skill.

The first hour of each class will take place indoors in the Discovery Theater in the Nature Center. After that, we’ll head outside for some practical learning.

Session Schedule
Session 1: March 8 | 3 – 5 p.m.
