More Than Riding Bikes—This is Your Ticket to a “One-of-a-Kind” Team!
We are ready to roll into the upcoming MTB season! The Gators Mountain Bike Team is a one-of-a-kind team that will ride bikes on trails together and enter a handful of bike race events to put our skills to the test. This team is open to any and all boys and girls of all ages, Kindergarten to 6th grade – and older, who are interested in trail riding as a team with the focus on fun! Although Gators Bike Park is located on Granby’s property, this team welcomes any and all kids from any school – so invite your friends too!
Gators Bike Team Events
Each rider will have 5 practices spread out over the summer, weather permitting. Practices will take place either on Monday (at Gators Bike Park) or Tuesday (at Gnomewood Skills Park), depending on the rider’s skill group. The bike team will have first dibs at the new Gators Race Series, and will also do an optional team campout! We are not super competitive in what we do, but instead, work on individual improvement and being strong team members.
Ultimately, we like to think of ourselves as a big, 2-wheeled party!
Gators Bike Team Goals
- Introduce kids to trail riding, local trail systems, and a love for the outdoors and nature.
- Minimize the fear of participating in a “race” event such as a MTB Race.
- Form team camaraderie among group members (and family members) with group rides, high fives, celebrating personal accomplishments, Race Day TrailGates, and exercising together with an emphasis on FUN!
- Provide a quality team experience with a safe environment. We believe strongly in teaching and learning, not just riding. We have developed a coaching staff that has completed a Coaches Skills Clinic along with completing a background check.
