You make riding bikes fun. Really really fun.
Our team of 100+ students and coaches is amazing because it is entirely volunteer driven. We love seeing athletes outside having fun on bikes. To get the program running in a safe and fun way takes a little bit from everyone. Some end up giving a lot because they.just.can't.stop, others give what they can.
As a member of the team, the team expects everyone to choose 2 areas where they would be happy to help. Please choose from the list below. Any questions or concerns - please put that in the comments field.
