Team –

 

BHS MTB 2010-2019-  A DECADE OF GREATNESS !!!

Yah Baby!  The 2019 High School Mountain Bike Season is here…


Thank you to the 80 riders who fulfilled their commitment and rode the time trial BEFORE the first practice.  This helps your team immensely by saving training time as we move towards our first race.
The Time Trial helps us build our training plan and see improvement throughout the season and year-to-year.  It’s not just about individual times and fitness.  Even if you have been riding all summer and you think we know you as a rider we still need this.  It’s your contribution to helping your whole team!!!

-Team Snap-

You all should have received an invite or if you already have a Team Snap account it should now be included in your “teams”.

We use Team Snap to build RIDE GROUPS. Keep your “AVAILABILITY” Tab up-to-date.  PLEASE DON”T JUST LEAVE IT BLANK. COMMUNICATE WITH US !!!

BEFORE YOU CAN PARTICIPATE IN THE FIRST PRACTICE WE MUST VERIFY THAT YOU HAVE COMPLETED YOUR AVAILABILITY THROUGH AUGUST 25, THE DATE OF OUR FIRST RACE.

IF YOUR AVAILABILITY ISN’T MARKED 24 HOURS BEFORE PRACTICE YOU WONT BE INCLUDED IN A RIDE GROUP.


IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT WE KNOW WHO IS ATTENDING PRACTICE.
We have 30 volunteer coaches who are donating their time to ride with you.  Please respect their commitment by letting us know your availability for EVERY event in the calendar. Our ride groups are dependent on you and whether or not you will be riding affects the entire group.  We expect you to ride unless you are ill or injured or have a family emergency. We are a team and EVERYBODY is important.  Commit to ride and show up.  This is the easiest way for you to improve as a person, as a rider, and as a teammate.

Team Snap also has a message feature that will allow you to communicate with the group.   In your Team Snap preferences you can also set it up to receive text messages and reminders for team events.
