This year marks the 15th year of our Junior Mountain Bike Team! Jeff and Melanie have organized this program to introduce local youth to the joys of Mountain Biking. Over the years our team members have gone on to compete in various races (even winning some of them), as well as joining the DWS crew as bike shop mechanics. Maybe your son or daughter might be interested in learning how to trail ride this year! Our riders receive special pricing on bikes, apparel & there are even specials for mom & dad. Let’s all get out and ride. Please feel free to speak with a Down Wind Sports team coach to sign up or if you have any questions! A complete program schedule can be picked up at Down Wind Sports of Marquette or download here.
The team will meet weekly beginning on June 16th.
We will meet each Tuesday morning at 9 AM at Tourist Park.
Our riders can expect to have a brief lesson each week discussing maintenance, nutrition, racing and other aspects of riding. We will then take to the woods in our ability appropriate groups and ride on mountain bike trails for the duration of the 2 hours. We will ride over logs & rocks, down & up steep hills. We will negotiate challenging corners and different terrains. Most importantly, we will have FUN!
Best of all this program is FREE- Marquette Store Only!
