Riders must ride a safe, functioning mountain bike. We suggest bikes with disc brakes and a front suspension fork. Single speed and cyclocross bikes are not allowed. Registered MCA riders (7th-12th) are eligible for discounted bike purchases. Contact us for more information. We suggest that anyone looking for a new mountain bike talk to these bike shops.
Many good used bikes are also available from time to time. Facebook Marketplace is a good spot to look for a used bike. Do know that if you are not familiar with bikes, buying a used bike can be difficult. Some used bikes will require an expensive visit to the repair shop due to worn out parts that work for a ride in the driveway but fail on the trail. Our coaching staff is very familiar with fixing and maintaining mountain bikes and are willing to help answer questions about a used bike.
Generally, a race ready mountain bike starts at $700 - $800 and they go up from there depending on the features riders want. Before you purchase a new bike, please do consult with one of the bike shops on what makes a good bike for your new rider.
