Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance’s Washington Student League is hosting an event to promote youth riding Friday at 7 p.m.
The Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance is the state’s largest mountain bike organization. It is dedicated to trail maintenance and building, advocacy and education. The Washington Student League is a program with more than 170 middle and high school students on 20 teams statewide. League members take part in team rides, skills clinics, a leadership summit, and stewardship projects.
The film, “Singletrack High,” follows the lives of six teenage mountain bike racers in Northern California, and explains what it means to keep riding at an age when most of their peers have left their bikes in the garage.
That will be followed by a video featuring Evergreen league coaches and team members sharing their experiences.
Tickets are $10 for Evergreen and Cascade Bicycle Club members and $15 for general public. They are available at brownpapertickets.com/event/447377.
The event, starting at 7 p.m., will take place at REI, 222 Yale Ave. N., Seattle.Staff reports
