Take a Kid Mountain Biking - easyCLIMB
Looking for a fun family friendly place to take the Kids Mountain Biking? Join us for the International Take a Kid Mountain Biking event at the easyCLIMB trail in Cascade Locks. Check out the 3 mile trail built and maintained by Northwest Trail Alliance volunteers specifically for kids, beginners and intermediate riders.
This event is set to occur after your soccer Saturday plans, so feed the kids a snack, and pile in the car and head out to Cascade Locks.
There will be food, activities, music, trail tours, skills course, and onsite bike repair and the day will conclude with raffle and a headlamp parade on the trail.
Registered participants will also receive a NWTA glass, stickers and kid helmet if needed. Please see the Northwest Trail Alliance calendar page for more details and to register.

Can't make it out? We'll miss you, but you can still support our efforts at Cascade Locks and help us make next year's party even more pro. We're raising money through gofundme.com to build a trail head rain shelter for events and to escape the occasional rain. Imagine having a place to eat birthday cake before hitting the trail! Donate here to help make it happen.
