Sign up online HERE (click events and pick your desired week).

Our camps are a week long morning and/or afternoon bicycling camp to encompass all forms and skill level of cycling. Taught by local professionals for students from 8-17 years old. Riders 7 and under are permitted  in morning sessions only and riders over 12 are encouraged to enroll in the afternoon sessions. The camp includes 2 hours of instruction per day and 1 hour of practice overseen by the instructor. Campers may stay after for the remainder of the day (Late Pickup) to ride and practice on their own for an additional fee (Unless they are 7 and under).

Curriculum

Camp

Campers will learn general bike skill, bike safety, bike maintenance, park etiquette and cycling/stunt vocabulary. Campers will better their basic riding skills of pump, balance, speed control, jump, ride over, and stopping. Once campers have mastered the basics, our instructors will move them onto riding new courses and ramps, learning intermediate or expert handling skills, learning new tricks and working on their freestyle foundations.

Returners Camp

Returners Camp will continue where our camp leaves off. We will start with a refresher of the basics and continue on through intermediate skills until they are mastered. From there, we will move onto expert skills.

Advanced Camp

Advanced Camp is for the kind of rider that loves to ride and never stops! It’s an intermediate to expert level camp where riders will have the freedom to grow on skills that they choose. Instructors will ride with campers and help them learn and complete their goals.
