Oak Mountain State Park is home to one of the Top 5 Big City MTB Trails in the Southeastern United States, according to the latest rankings from Singletracks. Our trails are also a favorite among competitors in Xterra Oak Mountain, which draws outdoor sports enthusiasts from around the world to Pelham and Shelby County each spring.
What you may not know about our trails is that they are built and maintained by a relentless group of volunteers that make up BUMP, the Birmingham Urban Mountain Pedalers. BUMP's mission is to Build, Maintain, Preserve, and Ride. BUMP is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the sport of mountain biking. If you have a passion for mountain biking or are a beginner just getting started, BUMP offers something for everyone and encourages you to get involved. On September 10th, BUMP is hosting Women on Wheels, a free, beginner women's mountain bike clinic where women can learn riding techniques and skills from other women. Additional information is available on BUMP's website, and you can also reserve a bike to use if you don't have one.
Our September Sticker of the Month celebrates the adventure you'll experience when mountain biking at Oak Mountain State Park. You'll only find it at Cahaba Cycles in Pelham. The store recently relocated to The Canopy development on Amphitheater Road. If you haven't seen the new showroom, definitely check it out! Sticker supplies are limited. Once they're gone, they're gone, so don't miss out!
To be entered for a chance to win some more cool Pelham swag, do the following:
Take a picture of your sticker at Cahaba Cycles or on your favorite trail at Oak Mountain State Park.
Follow the City of Pelham *and* BUMP on Instagram and/or Facebook.
Post your photo and tag the City of Pelham *and* BUMP.
Use the hashtags #pelhamalabama, #apathapart, #explorepelhamal, and #bumpmtb in your post.
If you post to both platforms, you'll get an extra entry! We'll also throw in an additional entry if you post another picture of where you end up putting your sticker! Will it be your water bottle, your laptop, or somewhere else? We can't wait to see! The criteria for the second photo are the same as the first.
We'll announce the contest winner on the first Monday of the following month.
