Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day, PResented by Portland Parks and Recreation – 10/1

October 1 @ 9:00 am 1:00 pm

Join us on Saturday, October 1st, from 9 am to 1 pm at Gateway Green to celebrate Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day. Check-in & Day of Registration at “The Hub” (next to the pump track)

Created in 2004 and recognized by US Congress, Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day is a family-oriented outdoor event, where mountain biking is introduced to some, and others come out to test their skills and improve confidence. It’s about having fun, being safe, and meeting others who share the joy of mountain biking.

Bring your bikes, helmets & water bottles. We have a limited amount of bikes to loan. It will be a fun-filled day with skills stations & activities for all levels of riders, bike games & a raffle!

Bike wrenching services are generously provided by Metropolis Cycle Repair & Trek Bicycles.
