Break Into Biking @ Club Rush!
Want to talk to an experienced team member about what it’s like to be a Bike Dawg? Come out for Club Rush, Friday, October 5 at lunch time. Our Team Captains, Sarah Gorton and Zack Hatch, will be collecting info from interested riders and rallying last year’s team members to get revved up for the coming season!
Parents, this is a student-only event that takes place during school hours, so no need to volunteer. Follow us on Instagram @bikedawgs for reminders and updates.
What?: The Jensie Gran Fondo is an annual fundraising ride that directly benefits the Marin County Bicycle Coalition.
When?: Saturday, September 29, 2018, 8:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Where?: Rest Stop #3, Rock Springs Trailhead, Stinson Beach. Directions will be sent prior to volunteer day.

From a scant team of 7 freshmen boys in 2007, the SRHS MTB team has more than tripled in size. With boys and girls competing in a full-range of categories, Frosh to Varsity, Bike Dawgs have taken home many team and individual awards for winning performances. The Dawgs have made numerous appearances on the podium at State Champs, including gold in 2008. As part of the NorCal League (norcalmtb.org) and NICA (nationalmtb.org), San Rafael High competes against approximately 45 other teams, with rider totals topping the 500 mark.
