Student League hosts mountain bike program

September 17, 2013

By Staff

The nonprofit Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance’s Washington Student League hosts the Dirt Explorers Club for students in grades seven through 12.

The Dirt Explorers Club lets teens explore new trails, make new friends, work on basic mountain bike skills, stay fit and have fun riding in the outdoors. Dirt Explorers is open to bike riders of any ability or fitness level.

The club meets from 10 a.m. to noon:

  • Sept. 21 and 28 — Des Moines Beach Park, Des Moines
  • Oct. 5 and 12 — Philip Arnold Park, Renton

Each session starts with warm-up drills. Then, club members hit the trails, exploring twisting single tract, rallying over roots and logs, and playing balance and agility games.

Participants must be (or become) an Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance or Washington Student League member to register. Evergreen membership can be included with registration. Cost is $100 for Washington Student League licensed riders or Evergreen members and $130 for nonmembers (includes one-year membership to Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance).

Space in the club is limited. If spots fill up, interested participants will be added to a waiting list and notified when the next available spot opens up. While the club is focused in the greater Seattle area now, in the future WSL intends to expand the program statewide.
