History: In October a meeting was held at Del Mar Middle School to find out who might be interested in mt. biking. Local coaches including Gary Fisher, a founder/inventor of mt. biking and Kat Sweet, a National Champion Mt. Biker, Emile Mulholland, a Marin Mt. Biker who has working to create a middle school mt. bike league to include racing in the spring and Kathy McLeod a National Champion road cyclist who has established a non-profit to promote cycling education to children. Children learned about the middle school racing scene, high school mt. bike racing, and Mountain biking in general. 25 children signed up. Some children were interested in racing, some just want to learn how to safely, learn routes and where the trails are.
