BMA has teamed up with Singletrack Mountain Bike Adventures (SMBA)  to specifically develop this social ride for young riders, or as an introduction to the fun sport of mountain biking. This series of rides on easy to moderate trails, allows young riders to master newly acquired biking skills. Rides are oriented toward the beginner rider where safety, fundamental skills, and basic bike maintenance are presented.

This 4-week series is specifically developed for riders ages 7-12, and will repeat throughout the summer. For additional youth riding opportunities check out Singletrack Mountain Bike Adventures (SMBA).

Trails/Trailheads: Marshal Mesa, Flatirons Vista, Doudy Draw, Betasso.

Knobby Monday
(beginner's ride)


Every Monday
6:00 p.m.

Join the fun on mountain bikes! Practice your skills, have fun, and be safe riding trails! Before each ride we will review the fundamentals of bike/body position, shifting, and braking, then we will head out to an entry level trail to ride. Ride Guides will stop from time to time to check in with the group, and give opportunities to work on the fundamentals.

This is a no-drop ride.

Mix and Mingle


Every 1st Tuesday
6:00 p.m.

Want to meet other riders? New to the area? Hoping to find that special someone who loves the trails as much as you do? Come out and join us on the first Tuesday of each month. These are co-ed rides for intermediate riders, taking place on different trails all summer-long. Each ride is followed by dinner and drinks so you can get to know folks. Not just for singles but if you're looking for love, this is way better than Match! Hosted by a married couple who met thanks to BMA.

Mix and Mingle is a no-drop ride.

Trails & Ale


Every Wednesday
6:00 p.m.

Formerly known as the Boss Ride, these are co-ed rides for intermediate to advanced riders. We finish every ride by gathering at a local establishment for food and drinks.

Trails & Ale is a no drop ride

Gurlz Ride

Ladies only
All levels

Every Thursday
6:00 p.m.

The BMA GurlzRide, our weekly women-only ride, is about more than just riding. They are about fun, post-ride drinks, and the camaraderie that comes with seeing yourself progress over time. We love to ride, and we enjoy meeting other women who do too! At the trailhead we split into two groups: beginner and intermediate/advanced, and each ride has a leader and a sweep so you won't get dropped. Many of our current ride leaders came out to the Gurlz Ride as first time riders. Hope to see you!

The Gurlz Ride is a no-drop ride.

Brute Squad

All levels

Thurs & Sat
Times vary


The "Brute Squad" is BMA's newest ride. Brute stands for BMA Riders United in Training for Endurance. We meet once a week and every other weekend to execute a training program designed specifically to build the endurance, strength, and resilience (physical and mental) required to ride longer and further than you ever have before. Join us and experience the power of a group training environment, the camaraderie that comes from pursuing a common goal, and the personal growth that comes from taking on challenge!
