News & Announcements

This organization has no announcements to display


We plan to start scheduled rides/trips in spring of 2023. Occasional rides or meetings may occur this fall so be on the lookout on our Instagram.


Skills courses:

Whether you’re a new rider or a veteran, you can always learn a new skill. Skills courses will start in spring 2023 to teach bike handling and maintenance. 


Trail building:

One of our goals as a club is to bring MTB to Ames and the best way to do that is by building trails within biking distance of the university. We are currently searching for the right location and if we are granted permission to build trails, trail-building days will be held regularly. 






Q. What bike do I need?

You can mountain bike on any bike, however a hardtail mountain bike from a reputable manufacturer is recomended. For related questions contact Connor Slowinski @


Q. Where do you usually bike?

The closest trails are located in Des Moines. The Sycamore unit, Center trails, Ewing park, and Banner lakes trails are all good choices. The Trailforks app is highly recommended for locating and navigating new trails.

Dues are currently $20 per year.
