MOUNTAIN BIKING CAMPS & CLINICS

Mountain bike skills camps & clinics are designed to promote fun, while building rider’s confidence and ability to handle their mountain bikes while reinforcing the core skills. We start with basic skills and techniques and build on mastering these in order for riders to be safe and enjoy their rides. We teach skill development using fun games, sequential skill mastery and developing risk and hazard perception off road. This is achieved through the development of fundamental and advanced skills which improve the rider’s capacity to overcome trail difficulties and avoid injury.

We offer a variety of mountain bike camps and clinics below!

All participants must fill out an Online Waiver & our Health History Form (print & bring on 1st day).
