INTERMEDIATE LEVEL | AGES 11-14
Session 1 – June 26-29, 2023
8:15am – 11:30am
This intermediate-level camp will advance your child’s riding abilities by focusing on single-track trails with various obstacles, longer climbs, and descents. They will learn independent movement on the bike, jumping a curb, Bunny Hop (when and why), cornering on berms, advanced cornering pedal position, navigating uphill rock gardens, drops, track stand and ratcheting.
Intermediate campers should already be familiar and comfortable demonstrating skills taught in the beginner-level class (level pedals, neutral position, center balance, attack position, downhill/uphill riding, breaking, going over small rocks, cornering, scanning the trail, trail etiquette, basic shifting, cadence, riding in a line and ABC safety check.)
This intermediate-level camp is suited for youth with basic mountain biking knowledge and comfort controlling speed on dirt trails while navigating rock gardens, narrow trails, and other natural obstacles.
