Season is OPEN

Cue up Who Are You by The Who on your MP3 player:

Well, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?) I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?) Tell me, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Individually, she/he is a….Camper, outdoors-(wo)man, runner, cross country runner, dancer, soccer player, small-boat sailor, rower, BMX-er, dirt bike rider, cook, Scouter, reader, helper, and more.

Together, we are Colonial Revolution!

We are a cross country mountain bike team comprised of youth, coaches, community partners and sponsors, plus parent volunteers. Our team philosophy is a metaphor for life (Coach Mike)— This is outdoor and experiential learning where we keep working toward a goal.  Each rider creates a “Trail Toolbox of Skills” (Coach Mike) through building base fitness, developing and perfecting skills, building core strength, race specific training, and sportsmanship.

We blaze trails in the dirt but also as ambassadors for the sport of mountain biking.  In the minds of the other park visitors—hikers, bikers, dog walkers, horseback riders—we are the embodiment of all mountain bikers (Coach Jake).  As such, each member of the team represents not only themselves but also the local mountain biking community and the Colonial Revolution brand.   We aim to WOW them with our speak-first attitude, trail etiquette and safety mindedness!
