New Trail Open at Lock 4

Thursday, July 26, 2018


In preparation for the 25th annual Old Hickory Classic mountain bike race at Lock 4, a 100 yard downhill extension was added to BLT 1.   

The new trail gently slaloms down about 50 feet of elevation with one feature that is best described as a rolling tabletop mound. Riders have the option to roll over it, roll over half of it or go around it. The trail’s purpose is to create necessary connectivity for the Old Hickory Classic, allowing us to keep the race course completely on the east side of Lock 4 mountain bike park. 

The Old Hickory Classic will consist of multiple laps of a condensed version of Lock 4 and will be separated into 4 categories and distances for expert, sport and beginner level riders. Each lap gets a little longer and harder based on the category and experience level. For kids 10 years of age and under, we will host a race at 1:00pm on a short course on BLT 15 & 16. We want everyone to feel challenged and still make the experience enjoyable. 

Races will be on Saturday afternoon and will be finished by 3:00 P.M on Sunday.

If you are like us, you can remember a time when riding your bicycle to school was a legitmate form of transportation. You can remember gathering up a couple of buddies that lived within a 5 mile radius of your house and riding back and forth to school, stopping off for a quick game of baseball or at a friend's house before the street light came on.   Hey, even if you aren't as old as us you have at least seen movies like A Christmas Story or the TV show Stranger Things that reflect how walking and riding your bicycle to school was a thing, a cool thing, and was a form of totally envigorating freedom that came with the territory of being a kid.  Now, in 2018, we have heard real and frightening stories of parents waiting in the drop- off/ pick- up line for 45 minutes to an hour and moving a whopping 2 miles in that time span.  What has happened?!
