Mountain Bike Club

About Us

The members of the Piedmont Fat Tire Society are dedicated to the promotion and education of responsible mountain biking. Our members have come together to open new avenues (or trails) to the mountain biking community.

With an organized effort we hope to accomplish many goals. One major goal being to bring a positive attitude toward mountain biking in general by maintaining existing trails and developing new ones.
