Dirt School 2018 is a Minnesota High School Cycling League program for mountain biking to teach student-athletes the necessary skills to be a capable and well-informed mountain bike rider. This new program is geared for students who have never been on a mountain bike, are new to mountain biking or who want additional biking instruction to build their skills. The goal of this program is to empower youth through the sport of cycling to be proficient cyclists, whether they are interested in cycling as a life-long sport or racing in the high school league.

The MN League is partnering with with the Minnetonka School District and Community Center for this pilot program.

Dirt School Program Dates:

July 10th – July 26th

7th – 12th grade students (Fall 2018)

Bikes are available if needed, however a student can bring their own bike to use. All bikes brought by students will be given a safety inspection.

Transportation to and from the bike trails will be provided.
