Biking experiences usually last 2 hours. Though locations vary and are indicated with calendar event details, one ride example is at Spring Lake Park on M-119 where riders travel north toward Conway/Alanson on a well-maintained nature trail. Bikes can also be brought “on location” for the convenience of group participants, such as a school parking lot or local park.

Bike donations over the years from the AMBUCS chapter in Grand Rapids, a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring mobility and independence, have increased the Challenge Mountain fleet to 13. Tricycle-style therapeutic bikes, buckets bikes, two-wheelers, side-by-side, hand-crank, and buddy bikes help Challenge Mountain to accommodate various disability levels.

Participants gain personal fulfillment through a sense of accomplishment and a feeling of acceptance that translates positively into their everyday lives. These experiences create positive individual and group development, while building social and character skills.

Many biking events are coordinated through the Char-Em Intermediate School District, while others are part of Challenge Mountain Spirit Day Camp and Spirit Social Club.
