2017 School Mountain Bike Challenge On May 19

This year’s ‘School Mountain Bike Challenge’ will be held Friday May 19th. Over the 12 years of this annual event, it has demonstrated to be safe and fun for students as well as an inspiration for many.  Why should a student attend this particular event?  The Mountain Bike Challenge offers kids a chance to try a new activity – or challenge friends to try it with them.  It is perfect for a fun or first mountain biking experience.   It is not about results or winning, it is about doing the challenge.  The event has both individual events as well as an optional team event.

The event is held at Limerick Forest, north of Prescott on a course thta’s beginner-friendly and fun for all, yet has challenge for more seasoned riders.  Students as young as 5 have participated.

Since the event has independent insurance a student does not require official school participation to attend.  Many teachers who bring students do not ride themselves, yet they do enjoy introducing their students to this healthy activity.  The volunteers who run the event do not profit from it.
