About the Club
The MTB Club is a developmental program for kids 10+. Coaches share drills and techniques to enhance skills like cornering, bike body separation, rolling over obstacles, and handling the controls of the bike. Our primary goal is to encourage a lifelong love of cycling.
Mountain bike trails are rocky, with roots, narrow trails, and can be steep. Riding over obstacles is necessary. MTB Club is perfect for the adventurous. (Minimum age is 10 with exceptions after Instructor Assessment.)
The MTB Club prepares young riders for our future adventure riding trips to offsite locations, overnight trips and eventually even develop into a member of the Clark Sports Center’s “Otsego Composite,” Mountain Biking Race Team. Our race team is a member team of the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) competing on the state level. Ages 10-17, members only. Must have your own bike and helmet.
Skill development day. Tuesdays are set aside to practice cornering, bike body separation, rolling over obstacles, and handling the controls of the bike in open areas. At times we will ride into wooded areas. This is a perfect time for all riders, beginners and advanced, to enjoy the challenges of mountain biking, learn some new skills and meet other riders. (Minimum age is 10 with exceptions after Instructor Assessment.)
Trail ride day! We will ride from The Clark Sports Center and typically ride a local trail off of The Clark Sports Center property, which will include at least one long climb and descent. This is the day we put your conditioning and skill to the test. This is not a day for beginners!
Advanced Rider Trips out of the area will be announced on Wednesdays and through email throughout the session.
The last ride is our rider’s party with pizza and movie after a ride for everyone who participated in our 7 week program. Parents are welcome.
Free, members only. No sign up necessary. For more information, contact Jim DiLiberto by calling (607) 547-2800, ext 126.
