Celebrate New Year's Day Mountain Biking at Big South Fork
Join the Big South Fork Bike Club's annual New Year's Day "Mail Run" event. Bikers will meet at the Bandy Creek Visitor Center at 10 am (ET), January 1st and then hit the trails. The ride is traditionally called the Mail Run because, like mail delivery, ‘neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of the night’ has kept scores of riders from stops members fromgetting out in the Big South Fork on New Year's Day. The Mail Run consists of a choice of rides varying anywhere from 8 to 35 miles so bikers of all ages and abilities can pick the group ride of a length they are most comfortable with.
"We always look forward to beginning our year with a challenging but fun ride on the trails at Big South Fork. It's a great way to catch up with old friends and meet new people at the same time," said Joe Cross, President of the Big South Fork Bike Club.
