Here at BikeTown we couldn’t agree more. We love riding our bikes and want to help as many people as we can love riding their bikes, too.

Mountain Biking 101

Are you looking for an alternative sport for your kids to participate in? Have we got the answer for you! Come on out to Buck Creek Trails and join us for Mountain Biking 101 - a beginner/intermediate level mountain bike class for kids. Kids of all ages are welcome as long as they can safely and confidently ride without training wheels. They just need a bike in good working condition and a helmet.

This class has been going on all summer, but now that school is back in session, the meeting time has been changed. We will meet out at Buck Creek Trails on Mondays from 5:30 - 6:30 pm. This will begin on Monday, September 8 and will continue until the end of October at which point it will be too dark for the kids to be riding out there at night. We'll take a break then and meet back up in the spring sometime. There is no charge to be a part of this class, but you will need to be a member of Abilene Bicycling Club in order to have access to Buck Creek Trails. This is a minimal fee of $15 per calendar year which covers your entire immediate family. Membership forms are available at BikeTown.

This is not a drop-off type of class. A parent/guardian must be present. Of course, parents are welcome to bring their bikes and join in the fun!

Questions? Send us an email or give us a call.
