Mountain Bike Camp


TGS Mountain Bike Camp from The Grammar School on Vimeo.



Half Day (8-13 yrs)

This is a bike camp 101. Riders will work on bike handling, pedaling, braking, and shifting techniques. Campers will also ride, build trails, explore, and have fun on the obstacle course.


Full Day Camp  (11-15 yrs)

This camp is for experienced riders who want longer more strenuous rides, and have the skills to maneuver on ungroomed trails and the willingness to tackle more technical terrain. Some days will feature nice long exploratory rides with lunch out on the trail. Other days will be divided into two rides. The focus will be on improving technical skills, mechanical prowess, and emerging as a stronger person.


New riders to this camp have participated in the half day camp or be approved by Daq.


Your bike should have three front gear rings to allow for varied terrain. Before camp, make sure your bike gets a thorough tune-up.


All riders should have a helmet, small backpack and eye protection.
