The Gold City Composite is currently comprised of:

  • Local Youth 6-12th Grades
  • Private and Home Schools
  • Lumpkin County Middle and High School

Welcoming riders in grades 6th – 12th during the 2021-2022 school year!

Students will become a part of the Gold City Composite team. School-specific teams are created once there are enough riders and support to do so.

Staff & Coaches

All coaches receive a yearly background check as well as Georgia Cycling Association required training in concussion awareness, risk management, first-aid, CPR, and coaching bike skills.

Participation requirements

We are here to have fun, ride, race, and include value for everyone. The team philosophy is fun first with our central goal of student athletes developing a strong mind, body, and character through mountain biking. There are no tryouts, everyone rides during practice regardless of ability and or skill level. Racing is optional and not required to join the team. 

If you need equipment or a bike, please let us know as soon as possible. The league has a loaner bike program for those that qualify, and the team has been able to offer scholarships locally to several families to help with registration and race fees. We want to get as many student athletes as possible on bikes, so please feel free to ask.
