Students in the Mountain Bike Team develop riding skills so they can enjoy some of the awesome purpose built trails available locally. The focus is on developing riding endurance with a view to competing in cross country mountain biking events. Riding is a healthy pursuit and a great way to spend time together with friends in the outdoors.
