Group Rides in Huntsville started as a way for local mountain bike riders to get together and ride, but at the time no one had any idea it would last as long as it has.
Since 1992, Algonquin Outfitters has hosted a weekly group ride, welcoming anyone who wanted to hit the trails with like-minded mountain bikers and providing support along the way.
Explore some of the places to ride in the local area with this no drop group of riders. Bring your own mountain bike and helmet to participate. Bike rentals are available if you book ahead.
The rides start in the spring and run through until late fall as weather and trail conditions permit. The group rides a variety of trails in and around Huntsville, travelling 15 to 20 kilometres a night.
If you want to participate, drop into the Algonquin Outfitters Bike Shop to introduce yourself or give Algonquin Outfitters a call – staff can give you more information about the rides and help you determine whether your riding experience would be a good fit for the trails. Everyone is welcome, though they recommend that participants be older than 15 – younger children may not be able to keep up with the group.
