Youth Mob 2020
COVID-19 is here and will likely have an impact on our program. At this time, it is likely that we may have to alter our schedule and\or format for this season. We understand that endless rescheduling is a pain for both parents, coaches, and riders, and will make a concrete decisions by April 22. Any updates can be found on this site and e-mailed to registrants.
Do you want to learn how to ride your mountain bike up, down, over hills, in the dirt, in the trees and on the trails? The Offroad Syndicate Mountain Bike Club in association with the Western Cycle and the Saskatchewan Cycling Association presents Youth Mob - a mountain bike orientated skills course for kids ages 6 and up. Name change this year to showcase our progressive skill development not just for kids but for teenagers as well.

WHEN: Monday Nights. From beginning of May to the end of June. Class starts at 6:30 pm.
WHERE: Douglas Park Hill. Meet at the concrete look out at the base of the hill. At Wascana Trails we meet in the parking lot.
WHO: All ORS youth members are welcome. Male, female, and parents! You MUST be a member of ORS to join the Youth Mob (insurance requirement!). No exceptions. Once class begins, participants will split into multiple groups based on age and experience.
WHAT: In May, we tighten up our basic skills at Douglas Park. In June, we rip at Wascana Trails. Oh, and we give away a spectacular prize at the end of June.
WHY: So you can beat Nino Schurter or Cecile Ravanel if you ever meet them on the trail.
HOW MUCH: Some say you can't put a price on awesome, but we say it should cost $45.
New for registration 2020, there is an option when signing up for ORS membership to pay for the Youth Mob at the same time. If you do this, Birrell will send you a coupon code to use on the Youth Mob registration page to waive the fee so you don't pay twice.
