About The Event
Generally ages 7-9 or the newest of riders to mountain biking.
Kids in this group should be able to ride with two wheels, no training wheels, hand brakes and gears if possible. No coaster brakes. Do not need to be able to ride trails just yet, but we will work on this!
This week of camp will establish a solid foundation of fundamental skills. We will assess each child's individual ability and determine how we progress them and their riding. Children will be taught in groups of 8-9 students per instructor, ensuring proper attention to each rider.
Camp will take place at Hilton Tire Park from 10am-3pm daily!
