Youth must know how to ride a bicycle, stand between 4’10 - 6’7, and be 11-18 years old. The camp fee is $125 per participant and must be paid prior to the first bike ride. We provide bikes for participants to ride, bike helmets, gloves, and all tools and equipment. Participants should arrive having had breakfast, in comfortable & appropriate riding clothing, with close-toed shoes. Each day, we will meet in a different location. More details to follow sign-up.
Tuition provides: 17 hours of instruction, bike and other equipment, daily snacks, activities, water bottle, and MTP cycling t-shirt!
Scholarships are available; we don't want to price out families for whom the tuition would create a hardship. To apply for a scholarship, please contact Genevieve Parker, email@example.com.
We're expecting clear skies and comfortable temps but, of course, weather is unpredictable. If the weather will be overly unfavorable, we'll let you know and refund your child's tuition for any days cancelled. This is a great introduction to riding for amusement, or to get around, and it's a lot of fun!
