Let's ride! The Tahoe XC Junior Mountain Riders Program provides children in our community with an opportunity to experience and grow in the sport of mountain biking. Our weekly club rides focus on developing safe, strong, responsible riders through instruction, practice, and fun in a healthy, supportive environment. We want our local kids to become life-long bike enthusiasts (as well as Nordic skiers!). Mountain biking is an ideal activity to help condition your body outside of the cross country ski season. The trails here at Tahoe XC are perfect for all abilities any time of year.
