Mountain Biking is an extreme sport that requires proper gear and equipment including:
- Proper mountain bike
- Knee pads and elbow pads
We also recommend full face helmet, body armor, chest pads, and shin guards.
Although there is specific gear for mountain biking, similar sports gear can be substituted, like skateboarding or soccer pads.
Wipeouts, crashing and falling will happen and protective gear will make these incidents less severe.
Participants need to already be comfortable riding a bike and have good riding skills on the pavement before signing up for Mountain Bike Camp. Equipment, gear and rider ability will be evaluated at the beginning of each session and riders are grouped together by skill level. Space is limited for each session.
