Mountain Biking

Mountain Biking TEAm is Ready for Adventure!

Our Upper School Mountain Biking TEAm returns for another fun and challenging season riding the best trails Tahoe & Truckee have to offer! The goal of this TEAm is to build the MTB know-how, physical and mental stamina, and fun with friends on bikes exploring nature. Mountain biking is a life long, healthy pursuit and one that anyone interested should enjoy. This program has shifted from XC racing to focus solely on enduro riding with blended XC riding as well. And explore beyond Tahoe and Truckee on team overnight trips to Downieville for its classic 26 mile downhill, as well as Quincy, CA and its newly built MTB specific trail system and more.
