The Rippers Demo Forest – Spring Break

Trails, trails and more trails!!

The Rippers, Demo Forest 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 explore the trails of the Seymour Demonstration Forest, such as Fun Trail, Rocky Road and Slippery Snake, a few favourites. 

We will introduce the concepts of riding different lines and cornering.  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.

Requirements

If your child does not have the skills to be able to ride the terrain for their camp, we will try to fit them into another camp. 

If we are not able to place them into an appropriate camp, we will not be able to refund your registration fee. 

Let’s have a chat and find a solution that will work well for us both.

16″ wheel and larger

Comfortable starting and stopping, riding in control, riding up and down hills.  There are 3 blocks of road riding to reach the Demo Forest.  

 

 

What to Bring

The Obvious – bike and helmet.

The Not So Obvious – a spare tube (mandatory), specific to your wheel circumference, snack, (no nuts please), water and layers, all carried in a backpack by the rider

Expectations

Your rider will be shredding in all weather, please dress accordingly.

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 the children attending that week.
