Ride Kanuga Mountain Bike Park was born out of a simple concept; make mountain biking fun and welcoming. Founded by Neko Mulally and Dave LaMond; Ride Kanuga is rider built, rider approved. We do this through high quality, safe, and unique mountain bike specific trails; which equip and encourage both new riders and seasoned professionals to gain new skills and experiences.
“With thousands of competitors and leisure bikers coming to western North Carolina every year, we wanted to give riders options. The location at Kanuga gives us that flexibility. It’s the ideal setting for our new bike park and we are excited to call it home,”
– Neko Mulally
From youth and adult day passes, monthly memberships, to annual/season passes, we have the right pass to work for any schedule and level of rider.
Want to spend a day on the trail, but don’t have a bike? No problem. We have ebikes, mountain bikes, and safety gear (helmets & pads) ready to rent.
A brand new, top-of-the-line trail destination founded by world-champion downhill racer, Neko Mulally. With business partner and lifelong rider, investor, and entrepreneur Dave Lamond, an estimated $100,000 has gone into building the park’s development so far, at no cost to Kanuga, a 1,400-acre nonprofit Episcopal retreat center.
Ride Kanuga has 8 downhill-specific trails with a variety of skill levels available by reservation for individuals and teams for practice and competition. An on-site adventure center will offer bike and ebike rentals as well as a place to relax and have a craft brew. A qualified mechanic will be on staff to keep riders rolling. Trail-side cabins and campsites are available as ride-in/ride-out options. Riders may also opt to stay in one of Kanuga’s historic guest cottages or inns, a short one mile ride from the mountain bike trail entrance.
