Take a wild ride

Experienced and beginning mountain bikers can ride some of the best single-track trails in the state at the fourth annual Wild Ride Mountain Bike Festival.  The event will be held Saturday, Oct. 1 from 10 a.m.–4 p.m. at the West Trailhead in Lebanon Hills Regional Park in Eagan.
Riders can test out the skills course and ride the best mountain bike trails in the metro — all for free. Several local bike shops will be on hand for clinics, group rides led by coaches, tune-ups and much more.
Riders can bring their own bikes or check-out a bike for free. Attendees need to bring a helmet and a driver's license. Models of mountain and road bikes available for demo include Specialized, Giant, Norco, Trek, Framed and Felt. There will be kid's activities throughout the day.  Wild Ride is an official International Mountain Bicycling Association event.
Food and beverage options from the Blue Door Pub will be available for purchase.
The festival is presented by Dakota County Parks and Minnesota Off-Road Cyclists, along with Penn Cycle & Fitness, Valley Bike and Ski, Erik's Bike Shop, Gateway Cycle, Hed Cycling Products and Apple Valley HealthSource.
