Weather Policy

  1. We will cancel or delay practice if the weather has created dangerous conditions one hour prior to the start using TeamSnap alerts. No news means practice is on as scheduled, although look to Team Snap for the latest updates.
  1. We do ride in the rain, so come prepared to ride.  If the trails are too muddy, or wet, we will seek drier trails or seek out bike paths or other training locations, and teach the students appropriate places to ride when its wet.
  1. Parents, there are no penalties for missing practice so make the right call for your student athlete and your family, based on your needs, current conditions and safe travel.
  1. Our weather can change quickly and as we approach autumn we encourage our student athletes to come prepared to ride in the weather conditions of the day.  This may mean extra water on hot days or extra layers on cool days.  We believe being prepared serves you well for Mountain biking and life, so come prepared and enjoy the day outside!

Air Quality Guidelines
Air Quality is an issue in the summer and can be worse with wildfires. The Air Quality Index (AQI) is an index for reporting daily air quality. It estimates the concentration and type of pollutants in the air, and what associated health effects might be a concern for you. There is a global unified 0-100 (poor to excellent) AQI, that is color-coded and simply communicated.  See Map.

We will cancel practice if AQI exceeds 100, measured closest to our practice location.
