HERE IS SOME OF THE FEEDBACK WE RECEIVE
" I just wanted to Thank you and your super group of counselors for a terrific week of mountain biking. I was so pleased at how well the camp was run and the great progress my son and daughter made in biking. They did way more that I thought they would be able too. So, thank you again and hope to see you on the trails. Looking forward to next year."
"This is a bit overdue, but I wanted to thank you for taking Sam at the last minute when your camp said it was full. He loves mountain biking and has the utmost respect for you, your boys and Eric. What great role models you all are!!! Thanks for inspiring him and challenging him. We sure are lucky that he is learning from the best! He looks forward to riding soon with you.
"This is Scott , Jason's father. He had a WONDERFUL time last week. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I appreciate the things you taught him about riding and even more importantly your kindness and positive spirit is so nice for the kids to experience."
"I wanted to personally give you kudos for Luke’s new found love of the bicycle. He rides it every day to school (rain or shine) and has gone mountain riding a handful of times (including going with me to North Star twice). Took him riding on Wednesday and saw something I have never seen: a true love for the bike! he ripped up the hills and down them. I can’t thank you enough Otis (and your crew!). Magical!"

Here is a comment from a parent of a child that was taught how to shift and keep the bike upright the day before camp started by one of the counselors "Wow, Luka has come so far from Sterling showing him how to shift and brake to being able to finish the week with a 20 mile bike ride" This was from Luka: "Thanks for letting me in this awesome biking summer camp. My favorite part was when on Friday we went to that big swimming hole"
We are able to have a mix of new riders to advanced riders and help all their skills.
This is a mountain bike camp that can have a crew of 7,8 and 9 year olds do rides each day and build their strength, skill and confidence to do some pretty amazing rides.
And then still do some very fun rides for the 10, 11, 12 and 13 plus whether they are advanced, intermediate or just starting to ride.
