Cycling Sisters Camp, Grade 2 – 8

Learn skills and build confidence on the mountain bike. 

 

Cycling sisters is a summer camp program designed to introduce  2nd – 8th grade girls to the sport of mountain through a positive, supportive, and non-competitive environment.

This is a 4-day camp for beginner mountain bikers who want to learn how to ride on singletrack and explore some of Boulder’s trails through full day adventures. Each day of camp, coaches work with athletes to learn skills necessary to safely navigate technical trails and practice proper trail etiquette on multi-use trails. Through fun skills games, lots of trail time, and an encouraging environment, athletes build confidence on their bikes, make new friends, and enjoy nature.

 

The Cycling Sisters camp provides athletes with the opportunity to learn and practice the following skills: braking, shifting, balance/proper form, getting started on hills, riding over rocks and roots, trail etiquette, and basic on trail bike maintenance (e.g. pre-ride bike check, flat tire change, minor adjustments and chain fixes). Each day camp athletes explore a different trail or trail system with various terrain and many opportunities to learn and practice skills. 

Tentative Trailheads:

  • Mondays: Marshall Mesa
  • Tuesdays: Flatirons Vista to Doudy Draw
  • Wednesdays:  Valmont Bike Park
  • Thursdays: Betasso Preserve

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. Because the entire day is spent on the trail, athletes must have a comfortable hydration pack or backpack that can carry the following items: lunch, 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.
