Introduce kids to the joys of mountain biking

Grab the kids and the bikes and head to the trails of Deep Creek outside Bryson City to celebrate ‘Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day’ 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 6.

After the ride, there will be bicycling games, prizes and refreshments. Parents can either drop their kids off for the event or are welcome to stick around.

The nationwide “Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day” is supported by the International Mountain Bicycling Association.

Space is limited so reservations are required. Stop by Bryson City Bicycles in downtown Bryson City or call 828.488.1988.
