Elementary Club

Elementary Club is for beginner to intermediate riders ages 8+ in grades 2-5. Our welcoming & experienced coaches truly enjoy teaching young riders the fundamentals to progress their mountain biking skills and the basics of sharing the trail.

Join a 3-week skills-progression on Tuesdays or Thursdays in the spring of 2022 and continue to build skill and endurance with a 4-day summer camp. Many sessions include a shuttle so that the group can ride back to our office; this increases variety and usually allows a net loss of elevation, which helps riders feel motived to ride.

  • Consistent coaches & peer groups to emphasize personal progression and teamwork
  • Small groups for effective learning & skill development
  • Ride more technical terrain with speed, strength, confidence and flow

Build skills, confidence and explore the local trails!
