TMA on Two Wheels

Members of TMA Unplugged: The Wilderness Club are putting their off-roading skills to the test on two wheels. Thanks to a partnership with Trails for Youth and the National Park Service, students are learning to mountain bike this spring on Tuesday afternoons.  After an introductory skills session in TMA’s courtyard, students traveled to Fort Dupont Park this past Tuesday to ride the trails.  The mountain bikers meet every other Tuesday and will also work with the National Park Service on trail work and will continue to develop their biking skills in preparation for a nature-based adventure competition at the end of the spring.
