Cox Mill High Mountain Biking Club
Who We Are:
- A club for student athletes who enjoy the camaraderie and challenge of riding local mountain bike trails with a group. This is a cross-country sport, not downhill or jumping, although there are aspects of both encompassed.
What We Do:
- Meet up for social rides at local parks and trails.
- Meet up for skills building sessions and workshops.
- Learn to maintain our own equipment through lectures and tutorials with experts.
- Learn to build and maintain the trails by working with the local clubs. Cox Mill's club is currently assisting in building a 'home' trail just outside of Concord in conjuction with the Cabarrus County Cog Crushers team and C4 club.
What are the requirements to participate?
- Pick up the paperwork and information packet at a meeting. It contains information on both the Club social rides as well as what to do if you want to be on the Cox Mill NICA team.
- Own or have access to a sturdy, appropriately sized mountain bike with knobby tires (not slick road tires). You should also carry a pump and extra tube.
- Take your bike to a local bike shop for a safety check. There is a checklist in the packet.
- An appropriate helmet which must be worn at all times the rider is on the bike.
- A water bottle and cage or hydration pack.
- A good attitude and willingness to work within a group to make sure everyone enjoys a safe ride.
