Local Bike Clubs

Tarheel Trailblazers 

The Tarheel Trailblazers Mountain Bike Association was founded in 1990 by a handful of local mountain bike enthusiasts. The Trailblazers is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, recognized as tax exempt in October 1997. Over the years the association has grown to over 650 resourceful, energetic and active men and women of all ages. Our volunteers work directly with local land managers, building and assisting in the maintenance of over 110 miles of carefully constructed, sustainable mountain bike trails, in the Metro – Charlotte region. We are the voice of advocacy for mountain bikers and our goal is to build and maintain trails for all mountain bikers to enjoy for generations to come.

With WeeklyRides, our "Search One and Be Done" format makes it easy by bringing it all together in one place. And we do it in a simple, clean, ad-free design. After all, you came here to find a ride, not to buy a blinky light.
