More Than Riding Bikes—a One-of-a-Kind Team
The Gators Mountain Bike Team is truly one-of-a-kind. The focus is on education and FUN. We like to think of ourselves as a big, 2-wheeled party!
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.
Riders are encouraged to participate in the Gators Race Series—a series of 4 kid-friendly bike races—and bring their families to the team campout.
Gators Bike Team Goals
- Introduce kids to trail riding, local trail systems, and grow their love of the outdoors.
- Provide a quality team experience in a safe environment. We believe strongly in teaching and learning, not just riding. The coaching staff attend a skills clinic, are trained on all the latest youth sports requirements, and undergo background screening.
- Build team camaraderie among riders (and their families) with group rides, high fives, celebrating personal accomplishments, and exercising together.
- Prepare riders for the exciting challenge of riding in races.
