Unlock Your Adventure: The SoMont/PICL TryIt Rides

Dates & Locations:

Saturday, April 20th at Lorimer Park, 10 am. 183 Moredon Rd, Huntingdon Valley, PA 19006
Tuesday, April 23rd at Twining Valley Park, 5 pm. 1400 Twining Rd, Dresher, PA 19025

TryIt Rides are the perfect opportunity for students in grades 6-12 to dip their toes into the exciting world of mountain biking. Hosted in two locations, Lorimer Park and Twining Valley Park, these rides promise an introduction to the team in a fun, supportive, and safe environment. Guided by our trained coaches, participants will learn the basics of mountain biking, including bike handling, trail etiquette, and safety tips, as well as have the opportunity to meet riders and coaches.

No Bike? No Problem!

We understand that not everyone has access to a mountain bike, and we believe that should never be a barrier to participation. Thanks to Independence Youth Cycling’s commitment to getting more kids on bikes, loaner bikes and helmets are available for those who need them. This initiative ensures that every child has the chance to experience the joy and freedom of biking, regardless of their current equipment.

Why Join a TryIt Ride?

Mountain biking is more than just a sport; it’s a way to build confidence, develop a sense of adventure, and make lasting friendships. The SoMont Youth MTB Team and IYC are dedicated to creating inclusive, supportive communities through cycling, offering an alternative to traditional team sports where no one sits on the bench. By participating in a TryIt Ride, you’re taking the first step toward an active lifestyle, environmental stewardship, and becoming part of a vibrant community of young cyclists.
