Mountain Biking – Mind, Body, Spirit

Program Info

Instructors: GSB teachers Bob Ort (Upper School fine art) and Pete Roslund (Lower & Middle School P.E.)

Experience the exhilaration of mountain biking! In conjunction with Marty’s Reliable Bikes of Hackettstown, you will explore the outdoors in ways you couldn’t have imagined.

First, you will learn how to use your mountain bike safely and efficiently while touring several park locations in New Jersey. Second, you will learn about proper nutrition and hydration before, during, and after our biking experiences, ensuring that you have good energy levels and a healthy state of mind to enjoy mountain biking. Finally, you will gain an appreciation for the environment by learning how to maintain trails.

The program includes a trip to Manasquan, New Jersey, for a day trip with lunch to Allaire Park. Photography will also be an important component to document the wonderful learning experiences and memories you will have.
Of course, the most important aspect of the program is “safety first,” and we will always have experienced adult mountain bike riders with first-aid training on the trails with the students at all times. All registrations are due by June 20 to ensure participation in the program.
