BMS Outriders Bike Club

BMS Outriders Bike Club has wrapped up another season of riding! We had some great weather for riding and enjoyed getting out and around Farmington. We are also working on some projects to improve our bike room and maintenance area. Students & leaders are in charge of routine maintenance of the bicycles – we are always looking for more helpers! We are very fortunate to have this wonderful opportunity for our students at BMS. Stay tuned to the Boeckman Buzz in August for information about 2022-23 Outriders Bike Club opportunities.
