UPCOMING EVENT: Annual New Year's Day Mail Run Trail Ride
The Big South Fork Bike Club is a group of dedicated volunteers who adopt, maintain, patrol, and ride the mountain bike trails in the 125,000-acre Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area located on the Tennessee-Kentucky border. We have a strong alliance with the National Park Service staff and work closely with them.
Almost 300 miles of trails in the Big South Fork are open to mountain biking. Most of the open trails are shared with other users but there are several miles of trails dedicated to mountain biking. In 2012, several trails were designated by the International Mountain Biking Association as Epic rides. The Big South Fork was the first national park in the nation to receive this designation.
The club is affiliated with the International Mountain Biking Association and the Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association. New members are always welcome. We often have guided group rides for all levels of ability. We are especially good at helping people who are new to the sport of mountain biking. We believe it is important to give back to the sport, so we spend plenty of time performing routine trail maintenance on our trails. If you would like to join our group or find out more about us, please contact us.
