Mules Cycle Beth Murguia and Sarah Poarch  The purpose for forming the Alamo Heights Cycle Team for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students is to create an inclusive group for students who are interested in learning about and growing through the sport of cycling. The sport of cycling encompasses many developmental attributes including improving self-confidence, learning and maintaining physical activity for a healthy lifestyle, developing friendships, and providing positive role models in the lives of children.  We believe this interest group will promote dedication, work ethic, respect, sportsmanship, and competitiveness in a fun and safe environment. Between August and the end of December Twice a week at a designated riding area. To be determined by coaches and time of the season.
