Adventures

Our Adventures are designed for the enthusiast rider or avid racer that is looking to build up and clean up their ‘toolbox’ of mountain bike skills in order to handle a variety of terrain at speed.

We will blend an in-depth version of our traditional Intermediate – Advanced skills training with coached riding sessions and several mini-seminars on hot topics like nutrition, altitude acclimatization, and the perfect bike set-up.

After camp, you will see an immediate improvement in your riding and will have a boost in confidence on technical trails. You will be able to tackle rougher terrain and trickier corners with greater control and flow through single track, switchbacks, and berms with far more speed and efficiency.

Off the bike, you can enjoy all the scenery, shopping, and dining that your destination has to offer. Our camp locations are known as prime real estate not only for their awesome mountain bike trails, but also for their leisure activities. Any non-mountain bikers accompanying you for the long weekend will have more than enough to do to keep them happy and busy.

You can think of our camps as an awesome opportunity for what we like to call a “traincation”—a fun-filled vacation in which you get to spend most of your time doing what you like to do most—ride your mtb.
