Draper Park’s Bike Team is such a fun experience! There are lots of people who like to bike. It is a great chance to meet new people.  Ellie, a DPMS mountain bike team member, said she loved the exercise. Tanner, another DPMS rider, said he didn’t like the up hill, however, Ellie stated she likes both uphill and downhill. Both Tanner and Ellie agreed that Snowbasin was their favorite race this year.  Practices were held over the summer on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30 AM.    About getting up so early, Tanner said,  “it stunk but it was worth it.”  However, Ellie liked the early mornings as it was not hot in the mornings and it kept her from sleeping in too late. Over 75 students participated and had a lot of fun on the mountain bike team.  All incoming 7th and 8th graders can join.  Watch for sign ups in the spring.
