The Rippers – Spring Break

Trails, trails and more trails!!

The Rippers is for riders in the early to intermediate stages of their mountain bike skills development.

Our focus will be on  advancing our body positioning, level pedals, gears and climbing techniques. We will also introduce the concepts of riding different lines and cornering.  

The Rippers will explore the trails of the Seymour Demonstration Forest, such as Fun Trail, Rocky Road, Slippery Snake and many more.  As the week progresses and skills build, your rider may be experiencing more technical trails like Richard Juryn.  

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

Skills only get better with practice, so come out with the Escape Team and put a few more kilometers on those tires!!

 

5-8+ yrs.

If my child is the required age for the camp, later in the year, can they still be registered?

As long as your child is the required age within the calendar year, you can register them for the camp.

Expectations
Can my child always ride with their friend?

We make every effort to keep friends together, but it cannot be guaranteed.

Our groups are created to ensure each rider is kept engaged and in their challenge zone. This creates a cohesive group and a better experience for all the riders.  

The groups are defined by the skills of all the children attending that week.

 

 

BIKE TUNE UP MANDATORY

Please ensure that your child’s bike is tuned up and ready to roll a few weeks prior to coming to camp.  Bike stores are very busy so phone and make an appointment for the tune up.

Having your child’s bike in good operational condition will create a positive experience for your child.
