Several years ago, we began offering rides geared toward new riders, in order to encourage more people to try mountain biking. These so called beginner-friendly rides were implemented on a regular seasonal schedule beginning in 2019.
Hosted on various AOA trails, the rides take place the 3rd Saturday of the month April through October. It is a day for riders of all ages and mountain bike experience, from kids to grand parents, and from beginners to seasoned riders who want to take it slow on the trail.
AOA instructors are certified to various levels through the Bicycle Instruction Certification Program and teach riders to safely advance their skills. We feel this is a great way help riders increase their comfort on the trail and to share our love for mountain biking.
These rides are also an opportunity to simply try something new, make new friends and find new ride buddies.
Come enjoy the wonderful trails in Southeastern Ohio!
