Mountain biking is a sport where you try to best yourself and there are no losers. Each rider tries his or her hardest. It doesn't matter if you're the slowest or the fastest, it just matters that you're riding. We don't cut people for being slow because we believe that hard work and determination is what really matters.
What Riders Say:
"It's a truly great experience which changes your life around in a positive way."
"It was awesome. I can't wait for next year!"
What Coaches Say:
"The bike can change the lives of youth in so many ways – help them concentrate in school, help them relieve stresses and angst, help them manage their weight and fitness, connect them to a social circle, and create lifelong good habits."
What Parents Say:
"The RHS biking team was a great experience for the whole family. Having the opportunity to spend the day at all the beautiful venues, watching the exciting races and getting to know all the great families and coaches on our team and many of the other teams has been such a pleasure. And, of course, it has been a terrific experience for [our son] who has grown so much from the experience, both mentally and physically, and who I know will have a lifelong passion for biking. When kids become teenagers, especially late teenagers, it gets harder for parents to stay involved in their kid's activities. The bike team needs lots of parent support so is a great way to participate in a fun and rewarding activity with them."
"We especially appreciate your support of each member of the team and the great way you relate to the kids and parents. The team as a whole supported each other, which was great to see."
"You did a phenomenal job training the kids. I commend all the coaches for their expertise and level of fitness. The team meetings were great, [our son] learned a lot. Definitely keep it up. Great communication with riders and parents on what was upcoming, and what was expected."
"This was a huge undertaking, and all you guys did a terrific job!! Friendly, helpful, willing to share experience."
