MB1: Mountain Bike Basics (Afternoon, Ages 11-14)


In our introductory camp we teach the fundamental skills every rider should know, including proper riding posture, braking techniques, starting on hills, going downhill, basic cornering, how to ride over roots and rocks, and bike care. During the whole camp we teach proper bike safety while riding on trails, roads, in groups and the proper etiquette of how to share the path with other riders and trail users. 

Each day we focus on a new skill while practicing the skills we learned the day before. We get in a lot of riding and have a heck of a lot of fun at the same time.

Our camps are taught by certified Mountain Bike instructors with decades of teaching and riding experience. We help young riders develop the core skills that lead to a lifetime of recreation and fun on the trails. Want to get your kids off the couch and video game console? Sign them up and we guarantee they'll be hooked for life. 

Pre-requisite: your child should know how to ride a bike before entering this camp.
