Dads and Sons Mountain Bike Camp

Your long weekend will be packed with both purpose built flow trails and natural singletrack wonders as we shuttle the Shastice trail system in Mount Shasta and the epic 12 mile downhill trail at Mount Ashland. A combination of skills instruction and ride clinics will prepare you to ride world-class trails and when you’re not biking you’ll spend time swimming and cliff jumping, hanging out around the campfire, eating, enjoying new friends and making intentional connections between Dads and Sons and Creation and the Creator

  • 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.

    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.
