We ended our information meeting tonight by telling students: if you’re interested in become a member of the high school mountain biking team, tell us by filling out the form on our website. We’ll get back to you with details on the next steps required to become a member of the team.
We had 9 students and their parents show up for our first information meeting tonight at the Northfield High School. I was pleased that Red Wing and Cannon Falls were represented, as well as students from Northfield High School (NHS) and ARTech High School. And I was glad to see Stew Moyer and Cody Larson from Mike’s Bicycle Shop there, too. Thanks to Tom Graupmann, Activities Director at NHS, who graciously provided the AV equipment and helped set it up.
Austin and Michael were impressive instructors: very thorough, great storytellers, well-organized, interesting, and funny. Gary treated us royally with breakfast, lunch and even dinner on Saturday, with ample snacks throughout each day and happy hours at day’s end. The only disappointment: it rained all day Saturday and on and off on Sunday so the end-of-the-day-rides had to be cancelled.
We’re pretty enthused about all this. We will soon host a community info night in Northfield for interested student athletes and parents.
