Mountain Bike Team

Club Purpose 

Build Trails, Get Outside, Race!
Our team helps maintain local trails, we practice mountain bike skills that will help us ride trails of all levels, and we race in the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA). NICA has chapters in 28 states, Alabama's chapter has over 500 racers on 30 teams.


Students who would like to join are expected to participate in all fundraisers and community service projects listed above.  Make-up dates for these are available if a student has a scheduling conflict. Students are also expected to have a C in each class. If they do not, they are required to come to two morning study sessions per week until the grade is raised to a C or higher
