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

Spring MTB After School Programs: 2019

CSAT’s after school teams focus on skill development, exploration, and creating a positive team atmosphere. Within a team environment riders will explore the Gorge’s amazing trail networks while growing each rider’s MTB skills and confidence. All programs provide pickup directly after school and families can meet their rider at the bottom of post canyon at the end of the day. Teams are organized by rider’s age and ability.
