1-DAY DIRT RIDERS - Summer

 Summer 2nd – 5th Grade 

 

Introduction to mountain bikes, dirt riding and fun!

 

Lil Dirt Riders is a one day per week program offered in the spring, summer and fall designed to introduce young riders (grades Kindergarten – 5) to the sport of mountain biking through path, dirt and singletrack riding. 

 

This is a 1-day a week program that lasts for 4 weeks, for beginner mountain bikers who want to learn how to ride mountain bikes. Each day of camp, coaches work with athletes to learn skills necessary to safely navigate trails and practice proper trail etiquette on multi-use trails. Through fun skills games and an encouraging environment, athletes build confidence on their bikes, make new friends, and explore the paths and trails near and around Boulder.

 

The Lil Dirt Riders rides provides young riders with the opportunity to learn and practice the following basic bike skills: braking, shifting, balance/proper form, getting started, riding over rocks and roots, trail etiquette and bike terminology.

 

Athletes participating in the camp programs must have a trail-ready bike in safe working condition with: hand brakes, multiple gears, and a minimum 20” wheel size. Athletes must have a comfortable hydration pack or backpack that can carry the following items: snacks, water, sunscreen, rain jacket, and an extra tube. We highly recommend a CamelBak type hydration pack with a built in water reservoir and storage compartments.
