We're a bunch of high school kids who love mountain bike riding and racing. Our team consists of boys and girls who attend public and private high schools and live in Oakland, California or its surrounding areas.

Which Team should I Join?

Originally, Oakland Composite was the only Mountain Bike Team in Oakland. Under Morgan Fletcher, Oakland Composite grew to the point local High Schools had enough riders and were able to form their own teams. Although we race against each other, we still train and support each other at races. Check out all the teams in Oakland and the surrounding area below.

We compete in the NorCal High School Cycling League’s mountain bike race series in the late winter & early spring and are official members of the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA). 

Who coaches the teams?

NICA trains and licenses coaches to lead and assist each high school team. Licensing includes undergoing classroom/online education (including safety/risk management), on-the-bike skills training, wilderness first aid and a background/security check. Many of or coaches are parents of riders and we also have coaches who see the impact mountain biking can have on kids and volunteer their time to support our teams. Interested in being a coach? Check out our Coaching page and email us to set up a time to ride with us!
