FALL RIDES NOW HAPPENING!
We had 25 riders last night at our first official ride of the season. It was obvious that kids and coaches alike really enjoyed the opportunity to get back out on the bikes together. There were some new faces in the crowd. Welcome to Owen, Carter and Thomas.
A bike breakdown brought in our “A” group as it was getting dark. We will continue at River Bends for the rest of the season as it gives us an opportunity to do smaller loops closer to the parking lot as the light begins to wane. If we wish to extend the riding season as long as we can, it is recommended that riders bring lights.
If you have any questions, contact Coach Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meet at River Bends Park, 5700 22 Mile Rd, Shelby Charter Twp, MI 48317
Enter from the 22 mile road entrance and park in the first lot. It is recommended that due to traffic and construction that you check your navigation app for the best route to the park. See you at 5:45 pm
Riding Lights highly recommended!
Coach Jeff is offering Wednesday race training for those students who are registered for the remaining MiSCA Races. There will likely be two groups based upon speed. Novices are encouraged to ride.
Strategy and skills will be discussed. Team will meet under the Rochester Road Bridge. Park in the lot off Diversion Street beside the Clinton River Trail. Meet at 5:45 pm. Ride will be along the CRT to the Bloomer singletrack and return.
Riding lights are highly recommended!
In accordance with CDC, State, MHSAA and MiSCA, safety protocols will be put in place before every ride. These will include a quick online questionnaire and attendance.
MASKS ARE MANDATORY !!!
They may be removed once the ride begins
COVID has put our team and new varsity program on hold for 2020. We have now been given permission and will ride on Monday evenings until mid October or once it gets dark too early to safely ride the singletrack. Students may ride once using a one time waiver after which registration with www.miscabike.org is necessary. Cost of $50. Club fees are waived for the 2020 season.
Our third season will start again on May 3rd, 2021 with the introduction of our new Varsity program.
Team Jerseys are available to order by emailing Coach Karen at email@example.com. Next order will be placed in Spring 2021.
Race Jerseys are a tighter fit with a front zipper and back pockets. Cost is $65 plus tax
Tech Jerseys are a longer and looser fit with no zipper or pockets and are $50 plus tax
Jersey samples will be available to view at the first team practice.
Checks can be made payable to "Rochester Mountain Bike Team".
Rochester Mountain Bike Team has been granted "lettering" status from the RHS Administration. Due to COVID, our new Varsity program is moved to 2021. RHS student riders who join our optional racing program and meet our training and racing requirements will be eligible for a club letter.
Students that join us from other schools and/or districts, we will work on your behalf with your school’s administration to try to attain letter status for you.
