Join our 1-day camp for young riders ready to step up their biking game. Our experienced coaches will help them nail down the basics: braking, balance, and how to position their bodies right. We'll hit local trails like Centennial, Drifter, and Louie Joe, giving them a mix of challenges to tackle.
But it's not all serious stuff. We've got fun games and activities lined up that'll boost their skills and confidence. And when we're not riding, we might dive into some bike mechanics or kick back with an inside bike activity.
This camp is for kids who are good on 2-wheel bikes, especially those with at least a 20" wheel size. They should know how to use hand brakes (no coaster brakes, please). Every day, we'll climb and zoom down trails, giving them a real feel for mountain biking.
So, if you want your kid to learn, have fun, and get a taste of mountain biking adventure, our camp is the place to be!
