    Does the Air Force Academy offer mountain biking as a sport? And if you can tell me some details about the team.

    I'm pretty sure there's not a mountain biking team according to the academy website but during weekends you could go out on trails and stuff.

    Actually, I think that I did see mountain biking on the list of intramural sports. I was thinking of doing that or ultimate frisbee if I get accepted.

    Correct kt! Mountain biking is now an intramural sport! And there is a club too.

    hornetguy, since you are currently a cadet and can answer this first hand, What kind of options do 4* and 3* have for recreation on the weekends? I know passes off base are limited, but what kind of things can cadets do for a little fun on base?

    When the weather is good, there are tennis, basketball, soccer, volleyball, etc. There are also indoor tennis, volleyball, and basketball courts. A lot of clubs have stuff at the academy. I played with the airsoft club quite a bit, and they usually have games 2x per month. Now I am on the shooting team, so that takes up most of my open schedule time. There are a lot of things, you just need to find what interests you.
