Folks, it’s crunch time. This is a homework assignment. Please have written answers to the following two questions when you arrive at the clubhouse on Saturday morning. At the event on Sunday afternoon, we will have sponsors reading your answers to these questions. Below are the two questions. Please answer each of them with a statement that will take 20-30 seconds to read.
Question 1: What does being on El Grupo mean to you? How is it significant?
Question 2 for everybody but seniors: Looking forward, what is a goal you wish to accomplish during your time on the team?
Question 2 for seniors: Looking back, what’s one of the best experiences you’ve had as a part of this program?
Things to keep in mind. One answer to each question will be read per group of riders. Rider groups are based mostly on your age. You can find your group below. As you answer these questions, think broadly about friendship, community, and life skills- NOT bike racing!

You may work together in your group. We will be meeting in your groups to review/refine your answers on Saturday before you leave the clubhouse, so don’t leave right away. We will also explain in greater detail to you how the event will unfold. If you come prepared with the questions already answered, this will go very quickly.
In the words of Ru Paul… Good luck. And don’t mess it up.
