Gateway Green MTB Festival

 — and

Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day

Presented by Islabikes
with support from Portland Design Works


Kick off the summer riding season — and celebrate NWTA’s 30th anniversary — at our urban mountain biking festival, which includes Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day! Enjoy the newly-revamped riding at Gateway Green, food and drinks, coaching for adults and youth, new bike demos, plus loaner bikes and fun races for kids. There’s plenty of singletrack, skills courses (one just for kids!), a pump track, and an advanced jump line to keep everyone entertained all day long. Plus, for kids, we’ll have free Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day t-shirts and a helmet give-away while supplies last!

In between rides, hang out with friends old and new, view plans for the park’s continuing evolution, and check out the cool things from Islabikes, Bike Gallery, Community Cycling Center, Cycle Oregon, evo, Friends of Gateway GreenKidical Mass, LeattLumberyard Bike Park, Olive & Dingo, Oregon Bike ShopOregon Interscholastic Cycling League, Performance Bicycles, Portland Fire, Portland Parks & Recreation, Portland PoliceRed BullREI, River City Bicycles, Scoop Handmade Ice CreamShowers Pass, Street DogosTrips for Kids, Up ‘N Smoke BBQ PitVelo Cult, Wenzel Coaching, and Western Bikeworks.
