MOUNTAIN BIKE

CSAT’s MTB Program emphasizes positive interactions, a growth mindset, and trail stewardship through the lens of mountain biking.  Programs are available during Fall, Summer, and Spring and are open to kids ages 7 – 15.  Participants will join a small team of riders with similar skill levels and will receive top level coaching on all aspects of mountain biking from the basics such as body position and braking to jumps, drops, tech, and high speed corners.  Post Canyon is our primary stomping ground and CSAT members learn to take pride in the trails they will ride on a regular basis. Our goal for is each rider to cultivate a love of outdoor recreation, spark excitement, and improve MTB skills and safety.
Spring MTB Programs – 2018

 

Summer Team Programs:

NOTE: DUE to the change in the Hood River County School District calendar program dates have shifted to start on June 24th instead of June 17th. Programs scheduled for July 4th will be held on July 3rd! 

Summer Team Programs consist of a team who ride together once or twice (depending on the program) every week over the course of four weeks. In addition to becoming stronger and more confident mountain bikers, team riders also learn what it means to be a part of a team. We emphasize camaraderie, goal setting, and a growth-mindset to help each individual athlete become not only a better mountain biker, but a better person. All Team Programs are intended for intermediate – advanced riders. If you are new to mountain biking, check out our Development Programs! All programs include a Dakine jersey and Clifbar snacks!
