A night ride is scheduled as part of a mountain bike festival being hosted by Mt. Shasta Bike Park on Saturday, Sept. 1.

The Bike Park at Mt. Shasta Ski Park is teaming up with Kidder Creek and Bike Shasta to put on Bike Shasta Night Ride Festival.

It will also feature youth and adult skills clinics, a free concert with Soda Creek and The Winfields, and raffles for prizes.

The night mountain bike ride will be held from 4 to 10 p.m. with free light demos from Redding Sports LTD, Nite Rider and Light in Motion.

A youth mountain bike skills clinic is scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon, followed by an adult skills clinic from 1 to 3 p.m. Both are being conducted by Kidder Creek.

Mount Shasta Mountain Bike Association, also known as Bike Shasta, is throwing the free concert with Soda Creek and The Winfields from 4 to 10 p.m.

Proceeds from the concert and the mountain bike clinic will be going to Bike Shasta to help with the development of the Gateway Phase Two trail system.

Organizers state in a press release that the night ride is a first of its kind event at a Bike Park, “setting the tone for more progressive events to come. This is an opportunity to support the mountain bike community and have a great time with the whole family.”

Free camping will be available. Food and beverages will be sold on site.
