    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.
