Join the North Conway Public Library on Oct. 1 for a day of mountain biking fun in the White Mountains at “Bike for Books MTB Adventure Rides.”
The event offers biking enthusiasts of all levels and abilities a great opportunity to explore the varied trails and
terrain along well-marked routes in and around North Conway by showcasing some of the best mountain biking in the area, spanning all difficulty levels from beginner to expert.
Eastside Bike Guides will mark the trails and promises a great variety of trails to explore: from easy, short rides in Whitaker Woods for novice riders and children to very challenging, technical rides for expert mountain bikers. Chris Krug, owner of Eastside Bike Guides, promises there is something for everyone and quite a few new trails to explore this year! Gentle fire roads and flowy singletrack through magnificent forests and along rivers- whatever your heart desires.
Have fun learning new trails at your own pace- on your own or with a group of friends.
After the ride, join other riders for the included pizza lunch, fresh coffee, and delicious homemade desserts.
Bike for Books is a fundraiser for the North Conway Library and fundraising by participants is encouraged with prizes for top fundraisers.
