The IMBA Bike Village at Midwest Outdoor Experience will offer guests an opportunity to try all styles of bikes while learning from leading bike manufacturers, retail shops, race promoters and advocacy organizations in the country.
Guests can try demo bikes or bring their own and test their skills on a variety of different types of terrain (helmets and signed waiver required). Toddler balance bikes, children’s bikes, and various mountain bikes provide an option for all interests, ages and ability levels. The Bike Village is conveniently located near the Mad River Bikeway, gateway to the "Nation's Largest Paved Trail Network" where you can experience over 300 miles of off-street, connected trails. Thanks to these fine partners there are many ways to experience biking at Midwest Outdoor Experience.
