Oneida, TN (2018-10-23)  Did you know Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area has over 100 miles of trails open to mountain bikes?  The first step to safely riding your mountain bike in the Big South Fork is to plan ahead.  That means to know your route, know the terrain, and know things like trail conditions, stream crossings, and regulations.  Join Joe Cross on October 27, 2018 as he covers the rules of the road, safe bike mechanics, tips for riding on dirt trails and more.  This program is from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (ET) in the parking lot across from the Bandy Creek Visitor Center.  Please bring your bike, water, snacks and lunch.  Collect 5 Go Big Challenge points for attending this hands on program.
