Portland Parks & Rec has announced their two-day, kids MTB skill-builder camp! Check out the video and details below:

We will be offering another 2-day kids mountain bike skill-builder this May on the 4th and 5th. We have a great documentary on last year’s camp that is viewable here:

Below is a description of the camp. Any interested parties can contact me at: 503-823-8840 cole.robinson@portlandoregon.gov

Experience the excitement, joy, and unique feeling of being covered in mud with an ear-to-ear smile. Mountain biking is a fun and accessible sport that teaches us many lessons about fitness, nature, and self-empowerment. Dirt Dojo instructors Michelle Emmons and Matt McPharlin will teach you the secrets of ride technique that will give you confidence to fly down the trail, conquer challenging terrain, and exceed your expectations on your bike and beyond. Day 1 will feature fun and informative bike games and drills that will teach you bike handling, pump track skills, commuter safety, and sustainable trail-riding etiquette. Day 2 you will experience riding one of Oregon’s most prestigious mountain bike trail systems, Sandy Ridge, located on the lower slopes of Mt. Hood. Bring your bike and helmet or ours. Transportation Provided from East Portland Community Center. Registration Deadline: April 22nd.
