The first season of interscholastic mountain biking in Idaho is off and running! Each of the first two rounds of the four-race season have hosted over 200 student riders from all over the state. Expectations are high for the final two races: Eagle Bike Park on Oct.3 and the Avimor State Championships on Oct. 17.
In order for these races to be successful, the Idaho High School Cycling League needs your help! Around 75 volunteers pitch in to make each race happen! Volunteer shifts are available Friday, Saturday and Sunday of each race weekend, so it should be easy to find a fun, rewarding job that suits your schedule!
You can view available shifts and sign up via VolunteerSpot at http://www.idahomtb.org/volunteer/. The IHSCL's goal is to get more kids riding bikes, both for recreation and transportation. This ties in directly with the BBP's mission and we want to be supportive in any way we can!
League Co-Director, Jessica Gradhandt says she's been amazed at "how incredibly inspiring and impressive these races are.... Most of the kids out there are riding and racing for the very first time. Some Treasure Valley kids had only ridden the greenbelt 3 times... and ride on a donated bike. It’s awesome!
I hope you'll be able to lend your volunteer support to this awesome organization and help build the future of cycling in Idaho! Learn more at the volunteer page on the League's website. Still have questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org. See you at the races!
