Mountain Bike Night Ride

The Friends of Pocahontas State Park is hosting Night Rides at Pocahontas State Park every Tuesday night starting at 6:15 starting September 17th. with the exception of the fourth week of the month when the ride will be on Wednesday night (no Tuesday night ride on the 4th week)

This schedule continues till mid December.

Please arrive by 6 pm and be ready to ride at 6:15.

Park at the CCC Field which is approximately 0.1 miles past the Welcome Station. Parking fee is required for Pocahontas state park and can be paid at the Welcome Station. The CCC Field is on the right.  Go slow and look for turnoff to a small gravel lot near a bell and small building.

Have your bike maintained, lights charged and be ready to go. Lights must be suitable for night riding. Expect rides to last up to 2 hours.

This is a group ride. Ride leaders have the responsibility for keeping the group together. Please cooperate with your ride leaders.

What else to expect. Fun! Social paced ride of 1.5 to 2 hours. Group will ride trails as decided by ride leaders. Often decided by show of hands. The ride leaders will direct regrouping frequently to account for every rider. Your mechanical will be come a group mechanical as we will wait for your repair. If your lights go out early the group will have to exit the trail and get you to your vehicle before they can continue the ride. If your late please dont try and catch us if it is already dark. Any riding after dark outside of the group is illegal and reflects back as a negative on future night riding in the park.

    Cool night temperatures but after getting into the woods everyone warmed up. Lots of fun. Abundant leaves makes it interesting. Thanks everyone for a great ride tonight. Next week the ride is on Wednesday night.

      Thanksgiving eve should be a great ride. Let's burn off some calories before the turkey day festivities.
