VIRTUAL START TO THE 2020 RIDING SEASON


Welcome to Rochester Mountain Bike Team!


We hope that you and your families are staying healthy and safe.


Our scheduled start to the season has been postponed due to 

COVID-19.  Once we have clearance and the coaches feel it is safe to do so, we will begin riding together as a team outdoors. Currently, many of our student athletes and coaches are riding in their neighborhoods solo or with their families during this crisis. Others are choosing to ride indoors. Please continue to follow your parents, the CDC and government recommended rules and guidelines on safety. 


In preparation for our summer adventures and the fall racing season, we are moving recruitment to online. If you are planning on returning this season, please follow the registration information below to join this year's team.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Coach Karen at rhsbiketeam@gmail.com


Stay Safe! Stay Healthy!
