2019 Season Programs Start June 10th and Proceed through August 16th
“Once a week summer mountain bike progression…great for locals or families here all summer. Great way to build skills and fitness without a huge time commitment!”
Our ‘Once a Week” Programs differ from our camps, in that classes meet once per week throughout the school summer (June-August). Participants sign up for a specific class depending on their age and ability level, and for that summer, they ride and progress with the same kids and the same coaches over a ten-week period. Rides are programmed to gradually challenge the participants, technically and through their fitness levels as the summer progresses. There are NO drop in riders (unless previously discussed/arranged with coaches), to ensure the group’s ability level is consistent, which promotes a very safe environment. Finally, as with any team environment, long lasting friendships are established over the summer.
These classes are limited to 10 kids per class. A $25 late fee will be assessed to all registrations made after May 13th.
