Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Poto MBA Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day has been cancelled. Hope to see you next year!

The Potawatomi Chapter of the Michigan Mountain Biking Association is excited to announce its Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day event (#TKMBD) at Brighton Recreation Center, Sandhill Pavilion, on June 7 from 10am-2pm. This event is part of an international celebration supported by IMBA to encourage communities to join together and ride mountain bikes with kids. Learn more by clicking here.

The event is free for all ages to come bike and have fun. The Appleton loop will be open for riders and will also have guided trail rides. Early riders can try the balance bike course.
