This camp is for the beginner mountain biker looking to test the waters of an overnight experience. We will take our beginner riders on an introductory journey, spending the night camping in tents from a wooded basecamp. Both days, we’ll practice bike and awareness skills before we set out on group rides that are beginner in nature and geared towards developing a lifelong love of the outdoors, and bicycling. Our days will be filled with games, skill development, and fun. While the evening will be spent at our campsite based near our onsite kitchen with access to bathrooms, meals, and covered space. We will roast s’mores, play games, and camp under some of the darkest skies in the east.
This camp is intended for riders who have some previous riding experience but are still mastering the basics. It is not intended for someone who has zero riding experience.
