ABOUT THE BLUE-TAILED SKINKS MTB CLUB
After kids show up on the scene, the trail still calls. Mountain biking is a passion for many families. But it's not like little league. Often families that ride don't have peers for the kids to participate with. This club bridges that gap. We gather for weekly rides that are broken into ability based groups. Kids discover the joy of riding with peers while gaining skills and fitness. That's the whole point of the Skinks.
Matt Fritzinger is best known for starting the Norcal High School Cycling League, followed by the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) and was inducted to the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame for his work. Matt is now a very ordinary father who likes to ride bikes with his two boys and wife, Elizabeth. Matt cofounded The Blue Tailed Skinks so kids can have a fun experience riding bikes in Sonoma County with peers their own age.
Jeremiah Price is the father to two Blue Tailed Skinks, a special education teacher, volunteer fire fighter and lover of cycling and all things outdoors. Jeremiah met Matt at a MTB event, where their kids hit it off. The group started riding together and it was quickly apparent how much the kids enjoyed riding with buddies. They started the Blue Tailed Skinks to provide more opportunities to get kids out on the trails with their peers.
