About This Activity

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Thursday, July 17, 2014.

Whether you want to become a mountain bike pro or are just checking out the sport for the first time, this four day co-ed camp will help develop the knowledge you need to safely shred on your bike. Build skills and discover different riding styles at four unique locations: Gateway Green or Ventura Park Pump Track, Powell Butte Nature Park, the Cascade Locks trail system and Sandy Ridge.

You'll learn basic body positioning, bike handling, climbing, cornering, wheel lifts and taking small jumps. This camp also teaches trail ethics, parks ecology, and includes an opportunity to give back to nature through a service project. Beginners are welcome and encouraged! Loaner bikes will be provided or you may bring your own bike to ride. Helmets are required and will be available to borrow as well. We are proud to partner with The Dirt Dojo, Northwest Trail Alliance, BTA and PBOT for this camp! Sponsored by Portland Design Works.

Completed Health Form& Medical Release required.
