WHO IS GOLD CITY COMPOSITE?
The Gold City Composite is a Lumpkin County MTB team and official league of the Georgia Cycling Association (GCA). The primary goal of our program is youth development through cycling on Georgia’s trails and terrain. Our team consists of 6th-12th grade riders, who live in and attend public, private, or homeschool schools in Lumpkin County.
“We’re a bunch of kids who love mountain bike riding and racing. Our team consists of boys and girls who attend public, private, and home schools and live in Dahlonega, Georgia”
Getting more kids on bikes! We focus on mountain biking because it gives kids an opportunity to get outside, get exercise, and explore nature within our local landscape and trail systems. We hope to give kids the opportunity to grow and excel in recreation, and teach them the basic physical skill of riding a bike safely with confidence. We coach kids to ride MTB in a team environment that facilitates camaraderie, sportsmanship and dedication, and we help our riders set personal goals to build strong minds, bodies and character in the process. Our aim, is to produce lifelong riders with a love for the ride!
WHO CAN JOIN AND RIDE WITH THE TEAM?
We welcome all riders! All teams are co-ed and with all skill levels practicing and racing. Local middle to high schoolers, 6-12th grade can join. The race team competes in the race series hosted by the Georgia Cycling Association each fall. Training begins spring and concludes with a fall racing season. We ask our riders to commit to a full ride season, dedicating to 3 practices per week.
