Bike Clubs at NSMS

  Bike League or Mountain Biking?  

Both: April & May.  Boys & Girls welcome

Bike League: 8 events in 8 cycling disciplines:  Tuesdays after school

Mountain Biking Club: 8 trail rides at Hartland:  Wednesdays after school

Bike League:  The mission is to expose children to a variety of biking disciplines and to support the schools and coaches who wish to participate. We always focus on the positive, fun aspects of competition, enabling each child to enjoy the racing experience and develop both their aptitude and self confidence.

 

Mountain Bike Club: To introduce students to the sport of Mountain Biking.  This is a non-competitive group focusing on fun and safety while trail riding.  It is intended to appeal to novice riders - those who are new to the sport or who have some experience and are looking to practice their skills.

 

Registration for both clubs is during the week of March 24 to 28.  First rides will be April 8th and 9th.  We start at approximately 4:00.  Students need to arrange their own transportation due to the difficulty of transporting bicycles.


A safe bike (preferably mountain bike) and helmet are necessary.  Water, a snack & gloves are strongly advised.  For some Bike League events bicycles will be provided (eg: for riding at the Velodrome).

 

Please contact Doug Caley if you have any questions.
