The 2020 season is coming to a close. While wearing masks is a drag and not racing is a bummer, we have been very fortunate to get out and ride our bikes during this pandemic.
Last day to join for the 2020 season was August 1. If you missed us this year, we look forward to riding with you next year.
Hey! Do you know how to ride a bike? Do you like having fun? Consider joining our mountain bike team! Our season starts with practices in late June or early July and goes through late October . We are part of the Colorado High School Cycling League. Our coaches all have NICA (National Interscholatic Cycling Association) training and aslo like to ride bikes and have fun! Practices are 2-3 times/week in the afternoons/evenings for 2-2.5 hours. We practice at open spaces like Green Moutain, Bear Creek Lake Park, North Table Mountain, South Table Mountain and others.
We are looking for new riders starting in 2021. We're looking for not just freshman through seniors, 8th graders can also join in on the fun and practice with the team. There are 5 races each season (in a normal, non-pandemic year) that are 2 weeks apart starting in late August. Only high school riders may race, but we welcome 8th graders to have fun with us at practices (and cheer us on at the races, if they want!). You don't have to race if you don't want to.
In 2019, we were a smaller team and practiced with Lakewood HS. To get an idea of what practices and/or races looked like for us, please visit our YouTube page or check out some photos (for more photos, follow us on Instagram). Interested in riding or coaching with us in 2021? Please contact us.
