Do you want to learn how to Mountain Bike?

 

We are excited to announce that our Mountain Bike camps will be returning for 2020!

 

Registration will open soon, use the links to be on our list to hear about it first!

Let me know when registration opens!

If you have never ridden, or are a beginner/novice rider and would like to improve your skills this camp is for you!  Over two weeks you will receive instruction from our PMBI certified instructors to get you rolling for the first time, or clean up your riding and get you feeling more confident on your bike.

Over three evenings in town riding the beautiful Knox Mountain trails you will develop your skills to handle the various terrain, from flowy single track to riding bumps and berms, all building towards a full day of riding at beautiful Big White and experiencing the fun of gravity assisted downhill riding!

Our instructors will get you started by focusing on the foundations of mountain biking, including body position and balance, braking, and cornering, and then build from there.  Groups may be split based on skill sets of the participants and registration numbers to facilitate a great learning environment.

Our goal is to not only have you develop your skills on a mountain bike, but to help you develop confidence in your own abilities so that you can challenge yourself and push outside your comfort zone to see what you are truly capable of.
