Get your bikes and helmets ready for BV Rec Youth Mountain Bike Camp!

The Beginner Camp is designed for kids who are excited to learn the basics of mountain biking while getting to practice and be pushed alongside their peers. The Intermediate Camp is designed for kids who are ready to take their mountain biking to the next level. From learning new skills around town to putting those skills to the test on some of the region’s best mountain bike trails, this course will push you to be your best.

The camp will consist of two, 2-hour sessions the first week. Participants will stay in BV and utilize the BV River Park and Midland trails. The final 3 weeks of the session will consist of one, 4-hour session per week. These last 3 weeks, participants will travel to Leadville and Salida in the BV Rec mini bus. This equates to a total of 16 hours for each participant.  We will travel to Leadville and Salida to introduce participants to beginner/beginner-intermediate mountain bike trails that BV does not offer. In Leadville, we will use the CMC Timberline trails and in Salida we will use the Rainbow Spartan trails.

Drop off and pick-up will take place at the BV Community Center. The sessions will be led by experienced mountain biker Mike Krayna, with additional help from various mountain bike experts and advocates from around Buena Vista.

Minimum of 20” bikes with hand brakes and gears. Participants must have a bike-mounted water bottle or hydration pack. Helmets required; gloves recommended. Snacks are highly recommended and plenty of water is required. We will provide a large water Igloo to refill water bottles.
