THE San Luis Valley Rattlers Mountain Biking Team is hosting a “Give It a Try Day” for middle school and high school students who are interested in trying mountain biking as an activity or a sport. The event takes place at the Limekiln trailhead, just west of Monte Vista, at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 7.

Team riders and coaches will orient students to their bikes and lead rides based on your skill level. Take a short ride and experience the thrill of climbing, single track riding and navigating small obstacles. Team up with other students that have a love for the outdoors and learn skills that will last a lifetime. You may even be tempted to join the team.

The Rattlers have a limited number of team bikes and helmets available for use. Visit for more information.
