Mountain Biking

Mountain biking is the sport of riding bicycles off-road, often over rough terrain, using specially designed bicycles that incorporate features designed to enhance durability and performance on uneven terrain.

Saturday 11 AM – 8 PM, Sunday 11 AM – 4 PM

Whether you're a toddler or an adult, we have a bike and a skills course for you!

OutdoorX guests can try demo bikes or bring their own and test their skills on a variety of terrain (helmets and signed waiver required) in the Bike Village. Toddler balance bikes, children’s bikes and various mountain bikes provide options for all interest, age and ability levels.

  • Cross Country Mountain Bike Loop
    The Cross Country loop will be a great place to demo various bikes at the festival. Test your skills on log overs, ramps, bends, elevated treads, skinnies and rock gardens.
  • Tot Track
    Balance bikes are bikes without pedals, perfect for youngsters ages 2 – 6 years old to learn how to balance on two wheels. On a special track just for them, toddlers will speedily push themselves around the course, then lift their feet and squeal with joy as they gently roll down slope.
  • Progressive Bike Ramps Pumptrack
    Build your skills on the Pumptrack! A pumptrack is a great place to practice basic mountain biking skills such as body position, leg work, turns and more.
