A city with ambitions to become "Bike City Alabama" can't merely rely on out-of-towners to come here to enjoy all the many places to pedal. It will also need to grow its own by encouraging a younger generation to get involved in cycling.
To that end the Northeast Alabama Bicycle Association is taking part in the Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day event this Saturday at the Coldwater Mountain bike trails.
Here are the basics from a NEABA press release:
• Show up at the Coldwater Mountain trailhead between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
• Be sure to bring a parent or legal guardian
• Start time is 10 am.
• Parents are welcome to ride too!
• Waiver form is required
