HS MTB Practice 23,25,27 September

****** Due to the fact that it is getting darker earlier we are moving the start of our remaining practices to 5:00pm.  This will allow our students who bicycle home a safer commute.  I highly recommend that all students commuting to/from practice have a small handlebar headlight and a rear seat post mounted flashing red light.  These lights can be purchased at our local team sponsored bicycle shops or on-line with our league sponsored  The link below is an example of a $10 front mounted light.  Just think $20 to be seen on the road….*******
