This year our mountain bike camp will travel to the Catskill Mountains of New York and specifically the Windham Wilderness Area. You will find us there riding “hands down,” the best single track in New York State. Mornings will be dedicated to advanced skill development focusing on cornering, bike body separation, wheel lofting and hitting drops. After our skills sessions we will head up hill on long climbs in the back country for flowy, sweet decent sure to put a smile on your face. On the last day riders legs are sure to be tired so we will do some laps at Windham’s Bike Park home to World Cup Racing to complete our 3 days out. This is an advanced camp and is only for the advanced rider. Some of the riding takes place in very remote areas and is not for beginners or unfit riders!
