“Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride.” ~John F. Kennedy

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 Tonight!

Yes - it is rather late notice, but the trails are rideable so we ARE going to have Mountain Biking 101 tonight. We will be ready to go at 5:30 this evening. Meet in the parking area at Buck Creek Trails and bring your bike, helmet, and bug spray. Remember, this is for kids, but parents are welcome to join in the fun. We would love to see you out there!

Mountain Biking 101 Starting...?

Well, everyone, the trails are wet. Very wet. Unfortunately, that means that Mountain Biking 101 is postponed until the trails dry out. We'll keep checking the trails and let you know when they are dry enough to ride.

Group Road Rides Ending Soon

Well, the days are slowly getting shorter which means the group rides will be ending soon. We'll have a few more weeks of the normal ride schedule before taking a break for the winter. Our last week of group rides for this year will be the week of September 22-25. So, if you haven't joined us yet, come on out for the last few weeks. Remember - easy ride on Monday night, moderate ride on Tuesday, and fast ride on Thursdays. Check out the group ride link on the left if you need more details.

No Mountain Biking 101 Tonight!

Well, apparently trying to schedule Mountain Biking 101 brings rain. Unfortunately, the rain we got this afternoon has left standing water at the trails. Not a good thing for parking in the dirt parking area, let alone actually riding. So...let's try again next week! Until then, have a great week and enjoy the fair being in town. Hmm...fair...rain? Any connection?

Mountain Biking 101

Just a reminder that Mountain Biking 101 starts its new day and time tomorrow, September 8. We will meet out at Buck Creek Trails at 5:30 pm to ride the trails for an hour. This is designed for kids, but parents are welcome to join in. Make sure and bring bug spray in addition to your bike and helmet. With all the wet weather we've had, there are quite a few mosquitos out there. Check out the Mountain Biking 101 link on the left for more information. If you have any questions, just give us a call or send an email!

Two-Person Team Time Trial

Looking for something a little different on a Sunday afternoon? The two-person team time trial is happening tomorrow! The route is the same 10 mile route that we ride every month for the regular ABC time trial. This time, however, y'all will ride in pairs. Each team will take off together and the last wheel to cross the finish line is the team's time. Meet in the Mueller parking lot on FM 18 at 2:00 pm for sign-up. The first pair will take off at 2:30. Grab a partner and meet us out there!

For those who haven't been before, head out Hwy 36 toward the airport. Before you get to the airport, hang a left on FM 18. (Tige boats is on that corner.) Drive a little over a mile and Mueller will be on your right.

Like always, if you have a question, give us a call or drop us an email.
