April is shaping up to be the busiest month of MTB fun for local cyclists.
We are excited to work with Bike Roswell to introduce Roswell Bike Week - a week long celebration of all things biking in Roswell.
Full schedule of events: http://www.rambo-mtb.org/events/?view=calendar&month=April-2015
The Roswell Bike Week action starts on Saturday April 18 with the Big Creek Quick 6 Enduro sponsored by Fresh Bike Service. Sign up here: http://www.rambo-mtb.org/big-creek-quick-six-enduro .
RAMBO is adding new "Fresh lines" to amp up the excitement. You will see new rock gardens, jumps and fast berms. Not only will we be hosting 150 Enduro Racers and their friends, we will be providing volunteers for the Dirty Spokes Peach Jam Half Marathon on the Forsyth Greenway.
Note that we plan a trail building party at Big Creek Saturday (4/11) to get the trails and Fresh lines ready for competition. If you want to see the new lines, you need to help build them...
The weekend continues with concurrent bike demos on Sunday April 19. Cycleworks is sponsoring a Trek Bikes factory demo at Big Creek and NorthStar Bikes is sponsoring a Pivot Bikes factory demo at Charleston Park. Both demos run from 10 to 3.
Monday April 20 RAMBO will conduct a Kids Bike Skills Clinic at Big Creek Park starting at 5:00 PM. The skills clinic is a great way to have your kid learn about safe bike handling and will give them the confidence to ride their bike almost anywhere.
On Tuesday, our friends at Bike Roswell take the lead in an easy paced road ride on the Big Creek Greenway. This is a great way to meet new bike friends from all around and have an easy ride on the Roswell / Alpharetta Greenway.
Wednesday April 22 is a Spring Night Ride at Big Creek. Its the last chance to get your lights fired up for a great warm weather night ride. If you haven’t ridden at night yet, this is your time to test your night riding skills.
Thursday April 23 it’s Bike Roswell’s turn to take you on a road ride starting at Riverside Park. Be ready to ride at 6:00 PM. Break out your skinny wheels for a ride around historic Roswell.
Friday April 24 Bike Roswell and RAMBO team up for the 2015 Bike and Beverage tour. It’s a leisurely ride around Historic Roswell taking in the sights and some of historic Roswell’s famous pubs and eateries. Everyone’s welcome on this 3 mile ride… Meet at Lucky’s Burger & Brew at 6:00 PM.
Saturday, it’s time for more dirt with the RAMBO Pump Track race at Big Creek Park, sponsored by Roswell Cycles. This race is a timed event and it is especially fun for the young kids. The race is run from 10 to Noon with a fun picnic after.
Not to be outdone, the big day is Sunday April 26. The Roswell Cycling Festival kicks off at 7:30 AM with the Roswell Mayor’s Ride followed by the Roswell Criterium. The Crit is the most action packed road race you will ever see. It’s a great event for the whole family as you take in the action and some kraft beverages at the local Roswell restaurants.
If the month of April doesn’t get you into the cycle scene, nothing will. But remember, we can’t do this without volunteers like you. If you are interested in helping with any of these events please contact us at: http://www.rambo-mtb.org/contact/ .
