Trail Riders Camp:

Level 1, Entry Level MTB (ages 6-10) $299

June 3-6th, 9a-noon and June 17-20, 9a-noon

Are you looking to introduce your child to the exciting world of mountain biking? Look no further than TR 1!  Designed for young riders ages 6-10, this 4-week program takes place on Erie's Sunset Trails and Singletrack trail systems. Our experienced coaches work with beginner mountain bikers to develop the skills necessary to safely navigate singletrack and practice proper trail etiquette on multi-use trails.

Each day of camp is filled with fun rides and plenty of time on the trail, all in a non-competitive and encouraging environment. Your child will build confidence, make new friends, and practice bike handling skills on the trail. Plus, they'll learn and practice important bike skills such as braking, shifting, balance/proper form on uphills and downhills, getting started on hills, riding over rocks and cattleguards, trail etiquette, and on-trail bike maintenance (e.g. pre-ride bike check, flat tire change, minor adjustments, and chain fixes). Don't miss out on this amazing opportunity for your child to discover the joys of mountain biking!

 

Trail Riders Level 2,  Intermediate MTB (Ages 9-13) $399 

Level 2: Tues/Thurs from 5-7PM starting July 16-Aug 8 (4 Weeks)

Meet at local MTB trails

Trail Riders Level 2 is for athletes who are ready for longer, more challenging sessions riding singletrack, and/or have previously participated in our Trail Riders 1 program. This program is geared towards athletes who have a solid foundation of basic bike handling skills on singletrack and want to spend more time in the saddle exploring a variety of terrain in and around Boulder County. Trail Riders 2 is a 4 week session, 2 days per week for 2 hours each day.

Riders split into small groups with our summer coaches and other riders of similar age and ability.

Each ride focuses on skills progression, team camaraderie, trail route navigation, good trail etiquette, and community stewardship.  Riders gain mountain bike experience on all types of terrain, build endurance, and build upon their foundational bike handling skills.

The following skills are practiced during each ride: climbing, descending, braking, cornering, and navigating technical sections of trail. Our TR 2 athletes typically ride on Open Space trails in Boulder County. 

The TR 2 program also gives riders the opportunity to experience many avenues in the sport of mountain biking, ride a wide variety of trails, and learn about their own riding style. Coaches work with riders to set goals for each session and provide a positive and encouraging environment for athletes to meet these goals.

Meet at various locations around Erie and Boulder. Locations for each group are announced weekly, which enables us to place each group at the best location for their needs and the weather that week.
