Middle School Summer Cycling Program
July 23-27, 2018 from 9am to 1pm for 5th-8th graders (grade in Fall 2018)
This week-long program will give your student the opportunity to learn new skills, gain confidence on their bike, and be challenged to try new things. They will learn how to make good decisions on the trail and how to be a responsible trail user. We will also be doing trail work at Turkey Springs to give back to the trails that we use!
Students will be placed in groups based on their ability levels.
Students will be dropped off and picked up by parents at the planned meeting location for that day.
Monday, July 23- Meet at Yamaguchi Park. Students will be riding at Yamaguchi, Dakota Springs and/or Reservoir Hill.
Tuesday, July 24- Meet at Cloman Park.
