Dig Days, Rides, Demos, Shuttles & More!

Summer is just around the corner and, although the rain has set in again, there’s still too much fun to be had on the trail and off to keep track of.  Here’s your NWTA roundup of all of the MTB-related happenings locally and a little further afield. 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.
