This year, we’ve moved Biketoberfest to Red Grade Trails to highlight the 6 total miles of hiking and biking trails that will be open to the public this fall. The community is so excited for more miles on this trail system, that we’ve teamed up with local businesses and organizations to create something fun for everyone. Bring your running or hiking shoes, your favorite bike and helmet, your yoga mat, and your friends and join us for an awesome festival in the foothills!
