Get Ready to Ride!

Get Fit to ride

All campers should be ready to ride each day for a half to whole day and so should be physically fit in order to maximize enjoyment of the week.  We'll send you a workout regime to get you ready to have the most fun during this week of camp. Download the Training Program PDF

Get your bike ready to ride before camp

Bring your own bike.  Each camper should bring his or her own bike for this camp.  We recommend that you have your bike tuned up prior to camp so it's ready to go.  If you don't have a bike that is suitable for a week of hard riding you can rent one at your local bike shop or contact us and we can help you with some good options for renting up in our neck of the woods.

Keep your bike ready - Bike Maintenance Deposit

Each Camper will be asked for a bike maintenance deposit of $100 to be put in the camp store to only be used for any maintenance on your bike during the week of camp.  All unused deposit will be returned to you at the end of the week of camp.
