Mills River Valley Trail Ride: Start riding between 8AM and noon

Individual registrations are $25 per person (in advance) or $30 per person at the event. Children 15 and under can participate for free. Registration includes one, well deserved, post-ride Bold Rock beverage. The festival afterwards is free for everyone!

The rides start and end at Bold Rock Hard Cider, where there will be a rest stop with snacks and drinks for riders, food trucks, activities for all ages, music, and of course hard cider and other beverages.
