The trails at Rocky Knob park are now OPEN. Heavy equipment is still in use in the parking area. The playground and shelter remain closed. Trail users please park in the FRONT of the parking lot either near the Gateway closer to the Hwy, or on the front side of the BAC trailer. There will be ongoing trailwork to fix some washed-out areas. Use caution around the landscapers doing work in the parking area and also the volunteers you encounter on the trail. Enjoy!
Join us for the Boone Area Cyclists’ second annual Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day on October 2 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Come sample the single track and the new kid’s pump track (yes, kid’s pump track) and perhaps win the bike above. Adults, you will have to give first dibs on the pump track to the kids. Sorry.
This is the eighth year the International Mountain Bicycling Association has sponsored this event. This weekend, IMBA has pledged to engage 30,000 children in 300 cycling events to support of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative.
Children on smaller bikes (16 or 20 inch wheels) will find fun in the new pump track area. Kid’s on 26 mountain bikes will enjoy the trails and the pump track.
Dress warm for some two-wheeled fun.
