MOUNTAIN BIKING

Welcome to the EVAA Mountain Bike Club

Mountain biking is a fun, exciting, physical sport and with Lebanon Hills Regional Park, we have one of the premier facilities in the state in our own backyard.  However, in order to fully take advantage of the park students need better access to training and skill development.

The Mountain Bike program is for students entering 5th – 8th grade in the 2017-18 school year and will meet twice a week, usually at Lebanon Hills Mountain Bike Park.  The Lebanon facility offers trails for riders of all skill levels, however, most of the riding will be in the skills course and on the beginner trails. Because we will be using a popular park that will be open to the public during our practices registration for the Mountain Biking Club will be capped at 50 students.

The program will be designed around two things; skill development and fun.  There will be opportunities for participants, especially returning students, to ride at their skill level, but primarily the EVAA Mountain Biking program will focus on getting comfortable on the trails and having fun.
