High School Mountain Bike Team Accepting Riders
Whatcom County’s High School Mountain Bike Team in Association with the Washington Student League.
“Our mission is to promote youth development, confidence, leadership, health and public stewardship through mountain biking and positive outdoor experience and to and create a foundation for lifelong cycling enjoyment.”
– Washington Student League
The team is open to anyone who is a Whatcom County high school student grade 9-12. Basic bike riding skills recommended. There are also volunteer opportunities for parents and bicycle minded community members. This is a great way to help out and give back to the community, as riding bikes ties together personal wellbeing, stewardship, and camaraderie!
An excuse to ride your bike! Meet new people, explore new trails, build your riding skills. The Whatcom Composite mountain bike team’s main focus is riding and skill development. The idea, most of all, is to ride bikes and have fun! There will be opportunities for racing, though it’s not a requirement. The League puts on four races a season, and we will plan to attend each one!
Spring 2015 – The goal is for students to ride 2-3 times per week. Practices will take place on two weekday evenings per week (4:30pm-6:15pm once daylight savings arrives), with a longer ride on the weekend. The tentative schedule is Tuesday/Thursday and Saturday or Sunday, though that may change depending on what team members deem most doable.Rides will take place on various trail systems, including Galbraith & Chuckanut mountains.
