      Come see why Roanoke and Virginia’s Blue Ridge is the Mountain Bike Capital of the East. The Blue Ridge Mountains have produced the best mountain biking trails in the East Coast. Whether you are into single speed, downhill, or cross country you will be spent after a day on these trails.

      The region is home to multiple trail systems — Mill Mountain Park, Explore Park, Douthat State Park, and Carvins Cove to name a few — that include multiple ride options that can give you a short half-hour ride or occupy you all day long. Add each of these areas to your bucket list, check them off one at a time, and be prepared to come back again and again.

      And we’re not ashamed to say the region is home to a few stand-alone epic trails as well. These are classic Roanoke mountain bike rides and not for the faint at heart. Some are one-way rides, so consider a shuttle and plan in advance. These adventures include the Patterson Creek Trail System, Arcadia Up and Over, Dragon’s Back and Dody Ridge.
