    GECKO and The Hub Bike Shop are partnering up on Oct. 5 for IMBA’s National Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day, 1-2 p.m. at The Springs Resort and Spa in downtown Pagosa Springs.

    The event is part of the first annual Epic Mountain Festival. Meet at the Hub booth in the expo area at 12:45 p.m.

    Rides will vary by skill level and will be on dirt and single track trails, so helmets are required. The Hub Bike Shop will be able to supply a limited amount of bikes and helmets for those who need them, but please bring your own if you have them.

    Have a toddler with a pedal-less balance bike? Bring them out for a fun time of riding with other toddlers their age. This will be an event the entire family can enjoy.
