As part of our environmental recreation activities, Field Institute of Taos has established Team FITaos, an all-ages and abilities, inclusive local cycling team. Team FITaos offers all team members opportunities to experience interpersonal growth, social development, improve physical and mental health, and develop skills for participation in a lifelong activity contributing to a healthy lifestyle. Through education, training and competition, Team FITaos provides a fun, supportive environment focused on mentoring youth, families, and individuals. Team FITaos promotes a positive image for Field Institute of Taos and all Team FITaos sponsors.
