We think Roanoke is the Mountain Bike Capital of the East. Surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains, we have hundreds of miles of single track, backcountry trails and forest service roads. This amazing variety of trail and terrain accommodates everyone from beginners and families to experienced riders. With mountains dropping right into town, the city area itself includes 3 different trail networks including Carvins Cove, Explore Park and Mill Mountain.

Whether you have a quick 2 hours for hitting the city trails or all day for a single track or backcountry adventure, we offer multiple guided and self-guided options to get you out there.

Our family trips are great for young ones just getting started and there are miles of hard packed, gently rolling trails perfect for children and those that want a more leisurely ride.

For those who want to experience the backcountry, a maze of single track, double track and forest service roads offer a great day of full mountain adventure.

Take a ½ day or full day guided trip where our experienced guides will lead you on a customized trip tailored to your groups ability level and preferences. With hundreds of miles to choose from, their local knowledge assures you get the most out of your trip. See Guided Trips page for details and options.



For those who want to explore on their own, we offer bike rentals, shuttles, maps and equipment allowing you to go at your own pace. RMA provides shuttle service and or bike rentals for those who want to ride, with many great options. Leave right from our shop located on the scenic Roanoke River Greenway. After getting outfitted with your bike, gear and maps, it’s a short trip down the Greenway to miles of trails on Mill Mountain. For more variety we will provide a shuttle out and back to Carvins Cove or The Explore Park. Both are within 20 minutes and offer a variety of terrain for all ability levels. Shuttle services include pickup and return from your local lodging and to the trail areas. See Self-Guided Trips page for details and options
