Mountain Biking

Mountain Biking TEAm is back to compete in the NICA League!

Our Upper School Mountain Biking TEAm returns for another fun season riding the best trails Tahoe & Truckee have to offer! The goal of this TEAm and its associated governing league, NICA, is to build the know-how, stamina and enjoyment necessary to make mountain biking a life long, healthy pursuit. Competitive races are also available to those interested (but not mandatory)- see NICA schedule below.
