The ISP Biking Program: Learning on two wheels

Funded entirely by the generosity of donors, the Middle School Mountain Biking program allows ISP students to take advantage of the wonderful natural playground on ISP’s doorstep. 

From experienced bikers to complete novices, the program allows students to learn an important life skill or hone their technique under the guidance of our Physical Education Team. 

The bikes are an important school resource and have been used beyond the confines of the Physical Education program. During this year with the COVID-19 pandemic, all of our PE classes are taking place outside so the bikes are being used even more than usual. For example, Upper School students and faculty used the bikes for the team-building elements of a recent stretch day. Middle and Upper School students have also used the bikes on weekends when ISP operates under Distance Learning to encourage belonging and wellbeing outdoors during challenging times.
