No Ride Today!

The rain is too heavy and too constant for a fun ride today, so we’ll cancel it.

See you all Monday night at 7pm. Bring your signed waiver forms, thanks.

Mid-week update

Wow, what a great ride on Sunday. Glad to see some new faces and a couple returnees. I think many of you are ready to race, and the rest of you will be soon!

We plan to ride again Sunday– maybe some skills work too.

IMPORTANT meeting for athletes and parents on Monday, 1/31 7pm at Tam.

Special thanks to Coach Paul for donating his entire weekend to get his Wilderness First Aid/First Responder certification– not that any of us ever want him to need it!

We’ll have another group ride this Sunday, meeting at 9:30am at the Depot Plaza. We’ll split into 2 groups before heading up Mt Tam.

Lube your chains, make sure you have a water bottle (and of course your helmet)! If you need a new bike(!) parts or service, swing by our major sponsor Tam Bikes on Miller Ave. Tam Bikes offers a discount to Tam High Mountain Bike Team members.

The weather looks good, but if ever in doubt if a ride is canceled, check this blog which is updated the morning of every ride.

Mark your and your parents’ calendars for Monday, Jan 31 at 7pm. We’ll be having our kick-off meeting, including getting your Team Jersey size & order. More details to follow.

First Ride of the Season

By | January 19th, 2011|

The Tam High Team met for its inaugural season ride last Sunday, January 16th. New Head Coach Paul Kundrat gathered the group on the foggy morning for introductions. The 14 athletes headed up the Railroad Grade for a mellow-paced ride to blow the cobwebs out. Some turned around at the Double Bow Knot while others climbed all the way to West Point Inn and a few made it to the summit! The long descent was a blast though a bit chilly!

Special thanks to Jeff J, Dennis C, Blair P and Team Captain Travis P for being ride leaders to help Coach Paul.

Athletes participating were: Chris, Isa, Elise, Joey, Bjorn, Drew, Jack, Alex, Glyn, Dillon, Dominic, Skyler, Travis, Bob and Veronica.

The next ride is Sunday, January 23rd at 9:30am– Depot Plaza is the meeting point.

Check this blog the morning of the ride for updates in case of bad weather.
