Who is Freeride512?

We are a group of mountain bike riders who enjoy progressing our skills, and the skills of others, through aggressive riding. Dirt jumps, technical descents, drops, skinnies - we live to ride them all and just can’t get enough. When we’re not out riding, we’re out digging, cutting, or building. We’re fanatic about freeride and love to share our stoke with like-minded riders.


As a FR512 Member, when can I ride the park?

FR512 RHR:
Members can ride any time. The only caveat is the back gate may not be open during non-build days at the RHR location. On build days, the gate will be open.

DO NOT JUMP OR CLIMB THE ROCKY HILL RANCH or BACK GATE or FENCE if it is locked. Reach out to FR512 through the FR512 Website Contact Us or Facebook Page.  If you're intending to ride the trails at RHR as well, you'll need to sign the RHR Waiver at the Pavilion at the RHR entrance, and grab a RHR Day Pass.

Last one out of the FR512 RHR Park, LOCK THE GATE, always.

So where does the money go?

All funds are invested in funding club activities - the majority of which is building and maintaining FR512 Mountain Bike Trails. If you haven’t seen this place, it rocks. So much so that many of our members donate additional time and materials to the Trails. That makes for some SICK trails!


Where are my house keys?

Well, let's start by retracing your steps. When did you last have them? Are they still in the door lock? It often helps to start there.
