Thanks to the dedication of our coaches and parent volunteers, and the patience and positivity of our student athletes, our mountain bike team had a great 2020 season. Rather than racing and riding as a whole team like we have in the past, we tried new things. We formed small pods of athletes in similar grades and at similar skill levels, with several coaches per pod. Our pods met to ride to practice at area mountain bike trails. We also piloted a new idea that was so successful and popular, we’re making it an integral part of our team: adventure rides! Pods met at mountain bike trails throughout the Madison area and beyond to ride on dirt together for a morning or afternoon. We look forward to using the great ideas that emerged from our “pandemic season” and getting more kids on bikes to join us this year!
