Knobby Weekend - West Magnolia

Any age, any ability - we've got a ride for you!

  • Are you looking to meet other mountain bikers?
  • Do you have kids that like to ride but can't follow you on your favorite trails?
  • Is your girlfriend or boyfriend slower than you :)?
  • Are you looking for that hard to find trail that only the insiders know about?

If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then the BMA Knobby Weekend ride is for you.

Come join us on July 9th at the Observatory trailhead in West Magnolia for the Knobby Weekend ride.

We will have "no-drop" rides for all skill levels, ranging from kids and cruisers to hammer heads.

Be sure to save time for the post ride BBQ and Beer brought to you by Whole Foods and Oskar Blues .

Check out the BMA trail descriptions of the Observatory and Hobbit trails.  This is a really fun area to explore with something for everyone.

Extended ride

Anyone up for heading over to 505>Sourdough>SSV after lunch ? Would be good to put a car at the bottom of SSV.


I can haul me and three more with bikes.  Let me know by emailing me at


If anyone's interested we can meet-up at the Boulder County Justice Center around 9:15 am on Saturday to carpool.  I've got room for 3 more riders and bikes as well.
