Are you brave enough to get dirty?

Join other awesome riders from the South Bay Mountain Bike Group for the two-day Trek Dirt Series CO-ED Mountain Bike Camp. (http://www.dirtseries.com/index.php) This will be a great opportunity for riders of all levels to learn new skills, ride with more confidence, and have more fun!

Camp begins each day at 8:30 AM. On Saturday the riding ends around 5:00PM; there is then an in-store session which runs from approximately 6:00PM to 8:00PM. On Sunday the riding finishes at approximately 5:00PM.

Cost is $345. If we can get eight or more riders for this date, we can get a 10% group discount. RSVP Yes to this Meetup, and I will email the code to you. You MUST have the code and use the code when you register. Registration begins February 1. Trek's California camps sell out, so you'll need to register as soon as you can, starting February 1st. I will email a reminder to all Yes RSVP's on January 31st.

A quick overview of the camp, from the Trek Dirt Series website:

"Our camps run on a two-day weekend format. We work on on-bike technical skills in the mornings, and put those skills into action on rides in the afternoons. On Saturday evening we feature bike maintenance clinics, bike fit opportunities, drinks, snacks, and social time.

For both the morning sessions and the afternoon rides, we divide into groups according to our experience, interests, and skills. Camp participants range from those with only a few days on gravel trails to those with years of experience and a desire for steeper technical lines and smoother fancier air.

Since we bring heaps of structures, stunts, and teaching aids to all our camps, everyone really gets to work at the level they’d like. There are, for example, different sized logs to go over and different heights off of which to learn rolling and air focused drops, so know that you will be challenged if you spend every free minute on your bike, and know that things will be reasonable if you are newer to the sport.

We run with at least a 1:6 coach to participant ratio, so every rider receives substantial individual attention. The camp includes a group photo, draw prizes, and the exchange of participant contact information. By the end, everyone's learned so much, had so much fun, and is on such a high, it's just incredible to see."

This camp is for all levels. You will be given a detailed questionnaire to fill out prior to camp to determine your skill level, and the camp will break into smaller groups based on your skill level.

Any other questions, check the Dirt Series FAQ (http://www.dirtseries.com/frequent_questions.php) or feel free to post them here. I recommend you read the information on the site completely so you know what to expect, what equipment to bring, etc.

Let's Ride!
