Mountain Bike Ontario (MBO) is a new initiative to get more youth into organized mountain biking. It is supported by the collaborative efforts of the Ontario Trillium Foundation, Ontario Cycling Association (OCA), Superfly, and Pulse Racing organizations.PHOTO

MBO is thrilled to announce two new introductory events for youth interested in getting involved with mountain biking, the Trillium Trail Blazers Youth Races.

Trillium Trail Blazers Youth Races are FREE for people 6-16 years of age, and offer five easy steps to becoming a mountain bike racer:

2. Bring your helmet and a bike (A limited number of bike rentals are available for a small fee at the Hardwood event ONLY. Please call 705-487-3775 to book a bike rental).

3. Join us before the race for a pre-race clinic where Pro riders can help you with your bike, give you some tips, answer any questions and make sure you're ready to race.
