Pre-season practices begin October 21 and regular season practices begin December 2. Pre-season activities generally include bike check and fit, maintenance workshops, fun rides and skills clinics.

Through the month of December, we only have team rides on Saturdays from 9am -12pm. In January, we begin with Spin classes at RISE Cycle in Montgomery Village on Tuesdays and Strength & Conditioning at Santa Rosa Bible Church in Rincon Valley on Thursdays and continue with rides in Trione-Annadel State Park on Saturdays. We will transition to mid-week riding in place of spin and conditioning as daylight and weather allows in mid-March.

Practices are led by trained coaches and ride leaders that have had background checks and are trained per NICA standards in concussion awareness, risk management and CPR/first-aid.  

Athletes are required to RSVP to every practice through our communication platform, Stack Team App, so that we have the correct ratio of coaches to students.


Racing is optional but strongly encouraged! There will be 4 races with an opportunity for the high schoolers to qualify to race in the championships. Parents typically provide transportation to/from all races. If a parent is not able to provide transportation, we can help arrange it. Most families and coaches camp on-site when available, otherwise, plan for hotel accommodations.


Student-athletes need to have a well-maintained mountain bike and are required to wear a well fitting, non-damaged or expired helmet and closed-toe shoes while riding. Riders must carry their own spare tube, mini-pump and water/snacks for all practices. Gloves (full finger preferred), sunglasses, a hydration pack, padded shorts, a breathable jersey/shirt and a lightweight cycling jacket are strongly recommended.

Each rider is responsible for maintaining their own mountain bike. Our bike shop sponsors are Breakaway Bikes and the Bike Peddler and they offer team discounts.

The NorCal League also has a limited loaner bike program. Contact the Team Director is you are in need of a loaner bike.
