We are officially off and running! On Friday, April 29th Ryan Solberg, our Director and the rest of the TNT Board signed papers to start a nonprofit organization with the aim of getting more kids on bikes.
The vision of the nonprofit is to fundraise as a means to promote accessibility for all interested athletes in the Truckee North Tahoe community.
While TNT and VELOcity are not synonymous, they are partners. All VELOcity athletes will be NICA club team members on a school-sponsored ASB team. This is an exciting development, but also restricts training and participation in the cycling club to the Nevada League NICA season. All VELOcity athletes are encouraged to join TNT as well as the high school club team; this will mean students can train beyond the NICA season and focus on enduro-style riding in addition to traditional cross country training.
The work of TNT is focused on benefitting not only TNT riders, but also the Lakers, VELOcity, and other Truckee North Tahoe school-sponsored ASB teams.
