Mad River Valley Youth Mountain Bike Group: The Mad River Rippers will begin its first season in June 2014!
The Rippers is an organized mountain bike group for kids aged 8 to 14. We’ll meet every Tuesday at 5:00 PM for fun single track rides around the Mad River Valley finishing at 7:00 PM. Most of our rides will be at the Blueberry Lake trails with occasional adventures elsewhere. Riders will be grouped together by ability and riding style so that everyone has fun. Each group gets teamed up with experienced and trained adult riders. We hope to ride from June 3 to the end of the summer. It’s free, but pre-registration is required. Don’t worry if you don’t have a super fancy mountain bike. If your bike rolls and brakes, it’ll work. We will safety-check all bikes before heading out on the trail.
Depending on the response, we might have to limit the total number of participants, so sign up now! Click on the link below to open up the Google Docs registration form. We’re also on the lookout for parents, adults, and older kids to help out as coaches/guides. If interested in helping, please email Bob Kogut at firstname.lastname@example.org.
