The Road Apple Rally is the longest running Mountain Bike race in the United States. The routes of this world famous mountain bike race present a 15-mile loop for beginners and the traditional 30-mile Road Apple Rally Route. The routes run through the Glade Run Recreation area.

Climbing on the course is minimal, which makes the course fast and fun. The "Whoops" section recruits mountain bikers from all over year-round as riders swear they spend more time in the air then on the ground! Course riders will most likely run across other riders but as the area is vast and consists of multiple trails riders will not feel cramped by others. The terrain varies from sandy arroyos and packed trail to slick sandstone shelves and provides a greatly varied and beautiful view for riders!
