MOUNTAIN BIKE

June 20-25

A 6-day overnight camp for intermediate to advanced male and female junior riders looking to develop skills, confidence, and fitness. Each day introduces new skills with ample opportunity to practice on easy terrain before putting them to use out on the trails. We'll get in plenty of mileage and keep the stoke level high by riding some of the best trails Western North Carolina has to offer, including Pisgah National Forest and Dupont State Forest.

What you can expect: skills-based instruction adjusted to your skill level for technical descending, climbing (we earn our turns!), cornering and braking; safety and situational awareness on the trails; equipment selection, maintenance and repair; training and racing strategies; proper bike fit, fueling, and recovery; lots of fun group dynamics. Plus picnics, games, movie nights and waterfalls!
