CROSBY — The Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Crew encourages families with children ages 4 and older to visit the Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Trails on Oct. 6 for Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day.
Originally developed by the International Mountain Bicycling Association eight years ago, Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day is a worldwide event designed to motivate parents and their children to grab their bikes and explore the natural world around them.
The Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Crew, a division of IMBA, is inviting families to check out the more than 25 miles of scenic single-track mountain bike trails near Crosby on Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day. Trail experts will be on hand to answer questions and guide families to the trails that best suit them. The event will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 6, at the Boot Camp trail entry point off Highway 128.
With trails ranging from “Boot Camp” and “Easy Street” for beginners, to the more daunting “Crusher” and “Screamer,” there’s a trail for everyone, no matter their skill level.
Last year IMBA reports more than 13,000 participants rode in Take a Kid Mountain Biking events held around the world. This year IMBA is encouraging passionate mountain bikers to connect with military families in the United States, helping those affected by deployments to enjoy a day on the trails.
