The Mountain Bike Project

After School Program

Tuesdays, 3:30–5:00pm, beginning September 13, 2022

The MTB Project is an After School Mountain Bike program for kids 9+. 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 Project is perfect for the adventurous. (Minimum age is 10 with exceptions after Instructor Assessment.)

The MTB Project 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 9-15, members only.

Trails can be technical but we will try to make each ride work for all. Closed toes shoes required. Loaner bikes available upon request.

Weekend Trip: November 5, 9:00am-4:00pm.

Last Ride, date TBD, 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 (315) 867-6334.
