2005 Bike the Parks Days

 

  Bike the Parks Days have been scheduled at some of West Virginia 's beautiful state parks. These days provide bikers the opportunity to meet other bikers, have a lot of fun, learn new riding skills and to ride the trials. West Virginia 's state parks provide fantastic mountain biking opportunities that feature great trails and the natural beauty found in the parks of the Mountain State . All skill levels of riders are welcome and beginners are especially encouraged to attend. These are fun rides, not races, and will be at your own pace and skill level.

 

  Mark Poore from Snowshoe Mountain will be the clinician at these events. His clinics will show participants how to pick up good riding skills and give them confidence as riders. Rides will have guides and will be of varying levels of skill and endurance. Bikers also have the option of riding on their own.
