Making A Difference

Supporting Youth Cycling


The Big Ole Bike Club supports the Central Lakes Trail, Kensington Rune Stone Park, Brophy Park and Barsness Park Glenwood single-track trail development. In 2016, the Alexandria Area Youth Cycling Mountaineer's Mountain Bike team was started with many club members involved in coaching the initial 8 riders. Our goal to get more kids on bikes as they start their 9th year.
