AMBC Updates

AMBC will be postponing all upcoming group events for the foreseeable future. With the health and safety of the community in mind we encourage everyone to do their part and to play it safe. Wash those hands, avoid close contact, stay home if you’re sick, and follow other CDC guidelines.

 

Knoxville has a great network of trails and as of now all parks remain open!!  We encourage trail users to get some fresh air while practicing their #socialdistancing

Avoid group rides

Stay off the Bike park at Baker Creek!!! (it’s a construction site)

Don’t travel to ride

Clean Drainage dips

Lop Sight lines on your favorite trails

Email Kellogg for loaner tools

Be Safe!!!

(the last place you want to be is at the ER…)
