Event description

The Northwest Trail Alliance is excited to continue our NWTA monthly youth rides! These rides are designed to provide a safe space for youth riders to meet and to develop confidence on the trails.  These rides are free, but we ask that you register at least 24 hours in prior to ride.

Although not clinics, the NWTA youth rides will be led by experienced mountain bike enthusiasts and are open to youth of all riding abilities. The NWTA youth rides are generally for teen riders, however, younger children with mountain biking experience and who are comfortable riding without their parents are welcome to attend. Please note that because the NWTA youth rides are not clinics participants will have the best time if they have some cursory mountain biking experience.

Please bring a mechanically sound mountain bike, helmet, closed-toed shoes, water and snacks. Elbow and knee pads are recommended.

NWTA will host a corresponding ride for chauffeurs and advanced youth riders. Come ride with us!
