Other Suggestions for Teams:

  • These riders progress quickly so they need modern bikes and proper equipment to stay safe and have fun.
  • Join us for weekend rides and optional trips

Weather Disclaimer: We ride in all weather except lightning storms. If there is any concern about the conditions we will contact you at the email or phone number listed, otherwise plan on riding and come prepared.

  • What group will I be in? Our goal is to make riders happy and keep everyone safe so groups and ride plans may change at any time during practice. While we can sometimes take feedback from riders, sometimes we all do the same plan or coaches will have specific plans for individuals or their groups. Communicate any special needs, goals or ideas to the coaches or email / call us to discuss.
  • Can parents ride along? We make specific invites when it’s appropriate for parents to join us for special rides. If you’re interested in volunteering as a helper, or becoming a paid coach we would love to get your involved with our trainings: email / call us to discuss.
  • Make-up days? Typically not available, but sometimes it’s possible for Team Riders if we have enough capacity on other days. Please speak with your coach at practice or email / call us to discuss.
  • Can I try it before I sign up? In most cases, yes, we allow riders to try the program or attend a skills clinic / info session.
  • What about refunds? Deposits, attended rides, and no-shows are not refundable. Please read our Cancellation Policy.
  • Do you rent bikes? Not really for youth programs… Riders should come to practice with their own bike in working order. In some cases we might have an extra bike available for emergencies but our bikes are typically reserved for guests on tour who need a one-day rental.
