Mountain Bike Camps
What does a typical day look like?
Each day we will demonstrate specific mechanical skills and teach practical riding skills. Riders will learn things like how bike gears work, how best to shift, the parts of a bike, how to use the brakes, how to remove each wheel, and how to fix a flat. On the bike, riders will learn how to share the road with cars and other bikers, how to climb and descend safely, and how to handle various types of terrain.
Most days will start at Diablo Vista Park next to the basketball and volleyball courts, and will be Destination rides.
What does my rider need for the camp or clinic?
For the best experience on the hills and trails we require that your rider has the following:
Mountain bike: with 24" wheels or bigger, 3 front chain rings, and multiple gears on rear wheel. The bike needs to be in good running condition. If you need a tune up before the camp, we recommend taking your bike to 6Fifteen Cyclery.
Helmet: one that fits well and is in good condition.
Sunglasses: for eye protection.
Saddle bag: with a spare tube and mini tire pump or CO2 cartridges in case of a flat tire.
Clothing: long finger biking gloves, comfortable clothing, tennis shoes, and sweatshirt (for cool weather).
Water: at least one water bottle cage and bottle is needed to keep your rider hydrated. Because not all trails have the opportunity to refill, some riders use a CamelBak to carry water. Make sure they know how to use it and that it is filled up when they arrive.
Bagged lunch and snacks: sometimes we'll eat lunch at the starting location, sometimes on the trail.
Sunscreen: apply sunscreen before arriving at camp as we will be outside the entire time.
Spending money: just in case we stop for ice cream at the end of a ride.
