Youth Intermediate & Advanced Mountain Biking
Mondays and Wednesdays, Boys and Girls Club Camp Simmons, April 16th – June 20th
Program runs Mondays and Wednesdays . We will meet from 4-5 pm. The first day of practice is registration and safety checks and an obstacle course to test rider’s close quarters handling skills. The first few weeks of practice will move between the venues of the Eastern Greenwich Civic Center and the Boys & Girls Club Camp Simmons (Lake Ave, Greenwich) so that the coaches may evaluate the skill of each rider. Click here to register.
From there we will move between Mianus State Park and Boys & Girls Club Camp Simmons as needed to work on rider conditioning and skills. Riders should be prepared to improve their skills and conditioning during practices.
Cyclocross racing is available and the team will participate in the Connecticut Series of Cyclocross races throughout the season and beyond. Additional races are available in the tri-state area. Racing is not required, but it is encouraged. This course is perfect for all team members that have participated in our past intermediate/ advanced programs and will have a mix of mountain biking and cyclocross specific riding. (10 minimum, 24 maximum).
All riders must have either a front shock mountain bike OR a cyclocross specific bike.
