Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day
On Saturday, October 6, 2012, Friends of El Dorado Trail and the El Dorado Western Railroad are partnering to support the International Mountain Bicycling Association’s (IMBA) eighth- annual Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day!
Each year, IMBA encourages communities around the world to share their passion for pedaling with kids on the first Saturday of October. This year, El Dorado County is getting on board and invites you to join in the festivities along the El Dorado Trail and at the El Dorado Train Park from 9am to 4pm.
Friends of El Dorado Trail suggests several rides:
• An easy out and back ride beginning and ending at the El Dorado Train Park at the end of Oriental St. (across from the Post Office) off Pleasant Valley Rd.
• A mild 4.4 mile ride along the El Dorado Trail from behind the Wal-mart on Missouri Flat Road to the El Dorado Train Park and back.
• A challenging ride beginning in Shingle Springs, across from the train station restaurant, and ending 6 miles away at the El Dorado Train station. For an even greater challenge, make it a roundtrip ride and complete the full 12 miles.
