The fully equipped Base has a fleet of fat bikes to tackle MaKaJaWan’s trails.  Scouts and leaders of any experience level can ride trails ranging from gravel roads to flow trails to technical singletrack.  Anyone interested in riding or learning about bike maintenance should stop by and speak with our knowledgable staff.

The Cycling Base operates out of the Butler Building, across from the Welcome Center.  Cycling Merit Badge is available during A Block and B Block.  The cost is $15.  Troops or individuals may sign up for longer trail rides during the afternoon Hour Blocks.  These rides cost $10.  Shorter trail rides are offered during most free program hours.

About Our Bikes

We have 13 bicycles available to scouts and leaders.  They are 7-speed fat bikes with indexed shifters.  All are equipped with front and rear disc brakes.  We have three frame sizes available to ensure that everyone rides a bike suited to them.
