Spring Break The Rippers

The Rippers – Spring Break

Trails, trails and more trails!!

Your Ripper will spend time on the trails of the Seymour Demonstration Forest.  Our focus will be on exploring different trails, advancing our level pedal, body position and climbing skills.  Along with starting to read the correct line to ride and practicing riding roots, rocks and corners.

All Rippers will be assessed on day 1 and placed into appropriate skill groups.  As the week progresses, and your Rippers’ skills progress, your rider may move through the various levels.

5-8+ yrs. 1:5

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.
