What we're about

Anyone that's been bitten by the mountain biking bug, knows there's no turning back and there's never enough rides.

This group is for riders that have experience mountain biking and have progressed beyond the beginner stage. (Basically, we don't have beginner rides)

We're not a professional organization, the leadership team is a group of volunteers who love to ride and want to share their passion for riding with others.

Our membership group is comprised of riders with various skill levels and ages. We may also have different fitness levels, but we all share the same common interest to "shred the gnar".

"No Rider Left Behind" is the policy of the Golden State Trail Riders, because we want to ride together and for you all to get home safe.

I invite you to check out our calendar of past and future meet-up's to see some of the great places we've had the opportunity to ride. If this looks like fun and interests you, we welcome you to join us at Golden State Trail Riders.
