The Psyched on Bikes Series is perfect for both beginner and experienced mountain bikers as we will have activities for all skill sets. All are welcome! Please come wearing sturdy shoes and bring water!

The last two Wednesdays will be held at Rend Trail, an unpaved trail where you can enjoy your new skills!

Get Active in the Park activities are perfect for grand-families, groups with multiple interests, and individuals. All are welcome!

Get Active in the Park is an innovative partnership between the National Park Service and Active Southern West Virginia. Trained Community Captains deliver free, beginner-level instructional programs to the New River Gorge region. Get Active in the Park empowers our community to see outdoor spaces as a place for health and wellness to take place. This project was made possible in part by a grant from the National Park Foundation through generous support of the Coca-Cola Company and Coca-Cola Foundation.
