For the first time ever, the City of Portland Parks & Recreation bureau will team up with local off-road cycling non-profit Northwest Trail Alliance to hold a kids mountain biking camp.
"Whether you want to become a mountain bike pro or are just checking out the sport for the first time," reads the camp description, "this 4-day camp will give you the hands-on experience you need to safely shred on your bike." The collaboration with Portland Parks is a great match, says NWTA's Director of Advocacy Tom Archer. The City provides the platform for the camp through their summer teen program, and the non-profit brings quality instruction and insider knowledge about the best local riding spots.
