Mountain Bike Camp – Level 2&3
As of now, all weeks of Level 2/3 camp are sold out for 2021, but you can add your child to the waitlist by following the registration link below. It will ask for a credit card and show what the total amount would be, but not actually charge you unless something opens up and we check with you first.
This camp is for kids with Level 2 and Level 3 mountain biking skills. Kids will break into two groups after the first day of camp based on age/ability. New this year, we have a few weeks with multiple locations (switching after Wednesday) in order to offer a wider variety of terrain.
This level becomes the difference between a ‘beginner’ and an ‘intermediate’ mountain biker. Though age is not the determining factor, kids are usually at least 7 years old and have been riding a bicycle confidently for a couple years. With level 2 comes more substantial mountain biking with drills specific to handling a bicycle on singletrack. Capacity for riding grows to longer consecutive riding stretches, maintaining energy and enthusiasm for riding, and the ability to show multiple riding skills naturally.
After initial mountain biking skills (braking, shifting gears, solid balance, etc.) are taught, practiced, and implemented on trails, coaches begin to build on a rider’s confidence. This level tends to be for the older kid (age varies) with the capacity to ride for up to an hour on single track and still have enthusiasm to keep riding later on. At this level the speed of riding increases both uphill and downhill. Switchbacks both uphill and downhill are introduced, and technical riding (rocks, roots, etc) becomes both exciting for the kid as well as doable with the honing of skills and practice.
