Trail Ride with the Volunteer Riders - June 18th

On June 18th the Volunteer Riders Dirt Bike Club of Knoxville is inviting anyone to come ride with them for a fun trail ride at Royal Blue. It's not a race, just a time to get together, ride some easy ATV trails and Jeep Roads, and get to know some more people who ride. The Start time is 9:30 at the main parking area at Royal Blue. See the attached flier for the details. It may be a little warm, but it should be a good time.

What’s happening? The Volunteer Riders are hosting an Off-Road MOTORCYCLE ride at Royal Blue on Saturday June18th. It’s open to everyone, every age. Dual sport bikes are welcome, but be able to handle a little mud.

The plan is to start off riding some of the easier ATV trails and jeep roads, make a short loop and then divide into groups based on ability and desire to ride more. This is a social event. Not a race or competition. The plan is to meet new people who ride and have some fun!

Where? We are going to park at the main parking Area at Royal Blue / North Cumberland Sundquist Riding Area. Follow the  directions below.  You’ll see the Vol Rider Signs.

What Time? We hit the trails 9:30 Be there earlier to have time to unload

Can I bring my kids? Absolutely!!  (If they can ride) This isn’t the place to get on a bike for the first time. Just be prepared to ride with them.

What do I need to bring? Proper gear, a bike in good condition, water for the trail, and food if you want it. The Volunteer Riders will provide some drinks.

You will need a Royal Blue/North Cumberland WMA Daily Permit (Type 036 $12.50). Can be purchased at any place that sells Hunting and Fishing licenses. (Walmart) There are also few options if you want an annual permit. You can get an Annual Resident OHV Permit (Type 035) for  $61, OR you can ride all year if you have a type 01 hunting/fishing license ($28) and a $17 Type 093 WMA small game permit (for a total of $45).

Directions  I-75 North / Take the Huntsville / Oneida exit (141) and turn right, and immediately right again. Follow the road that parallels the interstate until it forks. Bear to your left on the gravel road, go a couple of miles on gravel and you will see the 2nd parking area on your left. Look for the Vol Rider signs.

Please RSVP to if you plan on coming or have any questions. This will help us plan a little better.
