The Payson Parks and Recreation department is offering a free urban mountain bike ride through areas of Payson which encompass sections of the Payson Area Trails System (PATS), including paved areas for a less-challenging ride.
This is a beginner class for those who have a mountain bike, but aren't quite sure how to use it. Advance registration is preferred, although participants can show up and register prior to the ride. Meet at 9 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 2 at Rumsey Park, Ramada #4. This is a free event and water will be provided. Participants need to bring their own mountain bike and helmet.
