Expert coaches will guide athletes through this unique landscape and teach valuable skills in a safe, fun and supportive environment.

CYCLING SISTERS Ages 7-11 It wouldn’t be a SMBA girls program without tons of glitter, stickers, crafts, games and of course sweet singletrack. These 4 day summer camps introduce girls to the sport of mountain biking and build their skills and confidence in a fun and supportive environment. Girls ages 7-12 of all abilities are welcome. SMBA coaches are experts at assessing each girl’s ability level and helping them to improve.

DEVO TEAM (co-ed) Ages 7-14 The Devo program offers three and a half hour training rides with a flexible schedule for athletes that want to build skills, increase fitness, make friend and go on adventures. The SMBA Devo Team is perfect for the girl that loves to ride and enjoys being a part of a team. Riders will meet and pick up from trails around Boulder and will get to participate in fun team building days and skills days just like the Girls Team.

GIRLS TEAM Ages 9-17 The SMBA girls team is perfect for the girl that loves to ride. The team gets to ride all over the Front Range and beyond. The team is split by abilities letting each girl progress at their own pace. Team camaraderie is a focus for the team and the girls will get to participate in all the fun group activities the team has to offer like fun days, “big buddy, little buddy mentoring,” optional racing, epic rides and skills sessions.  The SMBA staff will work with each girl, whether they are new to the sport or they are looking to be professional racers, to be their best and have fun.
