Trek the Trails


Trek the Trails is a weekly bicycling program for families and individuals who want to learn more about the trail system, while participating in a mild-paced (10-12mph) 1 hour bike ride. Sponsorship includes logo placement on our annual T-shirt.  Many of the participants wear these proudly while riding their bicycles throughout our community, providing a trail-loving billboard for your business! Sponsors also receive admission to our Trek the Trails Kick-off Event, providing you the opportunity to sell merchandise at our weekly rides.
