Yes, you need your own bike for every practice. Specific bike requirements depend on the age group.
- Middle and high school riders must have a geared mountain bike with knobby tires of at least 26 inches.
- The Junior Rippers need to have a bike without training wheels. The size of the tire is less important than the fitment of the bike. However, the larger the tire size the easier the bike will roll over roots and rocks on the trail creating a more enjoyable experience.
In the event a rider needs to borrow a bike due various reasons, SWAY MTB Club has several loaner bikes of various sizes that are available for short term usage.
