The newly-organized Copper Sprockets youth mountain bike team is having a preseason ride Tuesday evening at the Whiskey Gulch Mountain Bike Skills Park just west of Montana Tech on Bluebird Trail.
Interested riders should meet at the parking lot at 6:15 p.m. to have your bike checked for ride readiness. Middle school and high school age riders of all skill levels are encouraged to participate.
Basic skills will be covered for beginning riders and intermediate and advanced riders will go for short rides with NICA certified coaches. Riders will return to the mountain bike skills parking lot at 7:30.
New riders will be required to have a parent or legal guardian sign a participation agreement and liability waiver before they can ride.
The Copper Sprockets are operating under the guidance of the Highlands Cycling Club a 501 (c)(3) organization. Email TeamCopperSprockets@gmail.com for more information.
