Mountain biking was something that I never thought I would ever get into. However, in eighth grade I decided to try something new and joined the NEYCA Bobcat Mountain Bike Team. Since then, I’ve discovered how much I enjoy going out and riding my bike with the team and spending time outside. We ride at Massasoit State Park and Borderland State Park. Although I’m not sure if I’ll be able to fit it in this year with all the demands of MAMS, mountain biking has given me confidence in myself, helped me work on my fitness, and allowed me to push myself further in things that I struggle with.
