On October 3rd, CATA and ArkansasOutside.com will host the second annual Big Rock Mountain Bike Festival at Cooks Landing in North Little Rock. The festival is an extension of IMBA’s annual Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day that’s been held at various locations in central Arkansas over the past 4 years. The festival will include a kids obstacle course, easy trail rides on the Pfeifer Loop trail led by experienced mountain bike leaders and other events such as a women’s mountain biking clinic, a bunny-hop clinic and other games and contests.
The festival is family-friendly event designed for riders of all ages and abilities, and is currently scheduled to run from 9 am to 3 pm. Food and refreshments will also be available.
The 2014 festival was a tremendous success, with riders of all ages enjoying the trails and camaraderie of the central Arkansas mountain biking community. This year’s festival promises to be even bigger and better with new events and a few surprises - be sure to mark your calendar as you will not want to miss Big Rock!
CATA will work on the Pfeiffer Loop trail in preparation for the event and will post information on upcoming trail work days as the festival approaches. Watch the CATA Facebook page and website for updates.
