Spring "try it" days, 2023:
Try-It days are our "open house" and your chance to come out, ride bikes, have fun, and see what we have to offer. All students in the Lower Merion area (LMSD, home-school, and private school), from 6th to 12th grades (in fall 2023), are invited. Parents who ride MTBs are also encouraged to come out and join in. Bring your bike and helmet and join us for some MTB fun! We have two days scheduled this season:
Try It #1: Saturday, April 29 - 10am to noon
Try It #2: Wednesday, May 31 - 6pm to 8pm
Both Try-It days are at Belmont Plateau.
Please note that Try-It days will be weather dependent - we don't ride muddy trails. We'll do our best to notify everyone a day or two in advance of each date if there are any cancelations.
Our first official practice will be on Saturday, July 15th. We'll have 3 practices each week through the season:
Mondays, 6pm to 7:30 - bonus practice for racing skills and endurance - meet at Belmont Plateau.
Wednesdays, 6pm to 8pm - typically meeting near Chamounix Stables.
Saturdays, 10am to noon - meeting at Belmont Plateau or other trails in the area.
Practices are weather dependent and may be cancelled if it's raining or otherwise too wet to ride.
