Youth Mountain Bike Program- "Off Road Riders"

The Y, in collaboration with the Superior Cycling Association and with bike funding by the Northland Foundation, is offering a Mountain Bike Program geared towards 12-17 year olds.  We'll go from the basics to trail riding in six sessions, ending with the Sawtooth Challenge in September 7th.  Limited number of Y-owned mountain bikes available.  If a participant wants to use their own bike the instructors will make a judgment call if it is high enough quality for the terrain.  Participants must have transportation for themselves and their assigned bike to each training session.
