  • Does my rider need a bike?
    • Yes. At this time we do not have loaner bikes specifically for the SHEN-ROCK Team. BUT do not let the lack of a bike hold you back. Be sure to reach out to Kevin Rogers ([email protected]) if you need help tracking down an affordable bicycle for your youth rider.
  • What if they have never ridden a mountain bike before?
    • Contact us and give us the specifics. We want to grow youth cycling and make sure we get more kids on bikes. We are flexible and happy to help make the team work for your rider.
  • Are there races?
    • There are races in the fall and spring Virginia Youth Leagues but the races are OPTIONAL.
  • Are practices required?
    • Practices are NOT required. We know that there are many competing interests for youth sports and hope your rider can join us as much or as little as he/she is able and eager.
