Not-Even-Close-to-Weekly Mid-Fall Regional Roundup

Autumn is almost over, but there’s still so much trail fun to be had! Here’s your NWTA “Weekly” Roundup of all the MTB-related happenings locally and a little further afield. Don’t worry, we’ll get back to a more regular schedule after the holidays! Check out our Community Calendar for longer range planning. We hope to see you on the trail!

*Inclusion in this list does not denote an NWTA connection; we’re here to spread the word for all our friends and partners across the region.

NOTE: Unless a group ride indicates that it is an NWTA, NW Trail Sisters, or Dusty Dads & Muddy Moms ride, it is not affiliated with the NWTA.  Please be prepared to self-support on any group ride or event that you attend and be mindful of the skill level required to participate. If you’re unsure of your level, check out our skill level guide as a starting point.
