About

Roll with Us!

The Stillwater MTB is a cycling team that uses training and racing to develop riders and create camaraderie within a competitive sporting environment.

Founded in 2013 with just 26 student athletes, we are now over 90 strong with two state championships under our belt. Biking is a fall sport with races during the months of August - October. Optional training starts each July, with required practices starting in the Fall.

We compete against other teams in Minnesota under the rules of the National Interscholastic Cycling Association, known as NICA. We balance the competition with the aspects of a club to keep this sport fun. We want the camaraderie and friendships developed around riding to last a lifetime.

Weekly Schedule Aug - Oct

The team has a typical weekly schedule. This schedule may change because of weather or training needs. We will communicate all scheduling changes through our Team Snap account.

Monday

No workout. Monday is tune-up and maintenance day at the bike shed. We may also use Monday's for classroom time to cover riding rules, etc. Monday is not a required day, but the coaches do expect the bikes to be working. Monday morning will typically be a drop-off option for bikes at the shed.

Tuesday - Thursday

3:00 pm -5:00 pm workout. Begin by having a snack as soon as the bell rings in school. Get changed and meet at the bike shed. We wait for the Middle School Activity buses before leaving. Make sure your attendance has been taken before leaving the shed.
