Camp – Green Geckos Mountain Biking Skills (Ages 11-14) – 3/25-28

March 25 @ 9:00 am March 28 @ 12:00 pm

These classes are for kids who are already comfortable riding a bike on some “green (beginner)” level mountain bike dirt trails/grass and can ride down features such as curbs and roots approximately 3-4 inches high. During this class, Riders will continue to improve their balance over varying terrain, including trails and pump tracks (or rolling terrain), as well as brake and corner with more confidence, and shift more smoothly. They’ll learn to climb, descend, and ride faster; they’ll also learn slow-riding skills to have fun riding more technical trails, including roll downs and drops 6-10” high – if they want to. 

A helmet and a bike are required; bikes & helmets are available to loan upon request (must be taller than 48″ for a loaner bike). If you supply your own, these are the requirements:

  • Bike: The bike has platform pedals, two hand brakes (front and rear), a seat that can move up and down, and is in good working condition. No coaster brakes, worn-out tires, or kickstands. 
  • Helmet: A helmet fits properly, is in good condition, and is less than 5 years old.
