Courteous Mass is an event – an urban cycling ride through Dayton. The ride is free – all you need to bring is a bike.
Rides are the first Friday of every month. Gather starting a little after 5:00 pm. We ride at 5:30.
Gathering Spot: Plaza in front of Fifth Third Field (Dragons stadium) – Monument at Patterson.
Up Close & Personal with Courteous Mass Rider Amy Forsthoefel:
Last September, Five Rivers MetroParks opened MoMBA (MetroParks Mountain Bike Area) at Huffman MetroPark. MoMBA is the first of what will be a system of outdoor recreation-focused facilities that will give the residents of Montgomery County new and unique places to play outdoors.
This facility features the area’s first fully sustainable trail system designed to IMBA standards, specifically for mountain bike use. The area features great terrain and natural assets, including beautiful hardwoods, a rock-bottom creek, great hills and rock-filled ridge. Volunteers can help maintain this trail that provides over 8 miles of mountain biking opportunities for the most advanced to the novice rider.
