ROXBURY, NJ - Revolutions Mountain Bike Club is hoping to bring mountain biking to students in Roxbury.
To kick off its efforts, it is inviting students in grades 6 through 12 to try mountain biking at Horseshoe Lake in the Righter Road parking lot on November 7 between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m..
The club will have coaches answering questions and leading rides. There will be a fleet of loaner bikes and helmets available for kids to use, or students can bring their own. Parents are welcome to ride as well.
The New Jersey Interscholastic Cycling Association kicked off its inaugural season in 2016 and has been growing rapidly. Now heading into its fourth season, the statewide league is approaching 30 teams located throughout the state.
The League is part of the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) which began 10 years ago and has grown to 31 leagues across the country with over 30,000 students participating.
The New Jersey season officially started on Oct. 15 with a preseason that consists of “Try It Out” rides and other fun events until the regular season starts on Dec. 1. The teams will ride together through the winter and spring until the season ends in mid-June.
All students are encouraged, but not required, to participate in the statewide race series which starts in April and consists of five races taking place at various locations throughout the state.
