Extreme Riders – Summer

An Escape Adventures’ Classic!!

Conquer the legendary trails on Fromme and Seymour Mountains.  Shred with the Escape Team Coaches who have grown up riding these trails.  Spend time exploring trails, sessioning TTFs (technical trail features), reading lines, practicing skinnies, ladders, drops, wall rides, and everything else The Shore has to offer.

Trails to be explored range from Bobsled, Floppy Bunny, Expresso, Crinkum Crankum, and Seventh Secret on Fromme to the Seymour Mountain trails such as Corkscrew, Asian Adonis, John Deere, Pingu and Pangor.  This is to name only a few – there are so many more!!

All Extreme Riders will be assessed on day 1 and placed into appropriate skill groups.

To be riding in Extreme Riders, you have to have experience with TTFs, riding steep up and down hills, skinnies, ladders, drops and wall rides.  We will continue to build your skills and confidence in these areas. 

**On Hold**Riders will have the opportunity to give back to their trails by spending time involved in trail maintenance through the NSMBA Youth Stewardship Program.  In 2019 our riders gave 500+ hours of time working on the trails.  The NSMBA (North Shore Mountain Biking Association) provides excellent instruction and guidance.
