Mountain Bike Routes:

Here is your chance to ride a route that hits all the major trail systems in the City of Richmond in one 50 mile loop You will ride trails in a number of Richmond’s Parks including the James River Park System, Forest Hill, Ancarrow’s, Dogwood Dell, Powhite, Pony Pasture and Larus. Smaller ride options of roughly 28 and 14 miles are available as well. All routes showcase what makes Richmond trails so unique and fun to ride.

Mountain bikes are recommended as the courses will have plenty of dirt and lots of technical singletrack. You will follow a marked course with aid stations along the way. Finish and receive a beer and a meal, and additional frosty cold beverages for purchase. Please don't forget your helmet, tubes, and other bike repair items you might need along the way.

Please note you will be riding on an open course, in an urban environment on a mix of singletrack and linked with on road connections. Most roads will be low traffic but the course does require short sections of some high volume roads. Although the trails on the course will be marked please keep a cell phone with google maps and make sure know how to navigate via the course map.
