Aspen is all about biking in the summertime, and urban mountain biking is the best way to start. Aspen Day Camp takes your child on a course around the perimeter of town teaching all the basics, from how to ride safely in a group to road rules. From park-to-park, day camper kids learn a progression of essential bike skills such as: braking properly, how to shift gears before climbing up a hill, and standing on the pedals going down a series of steps.
We take numerous breaks and wrap-up the day at our favorite swimming hole’s which may include, but not limited to, Aspen/Snowmass Rec Centers. Our campers gain the confidence to progress beyond their expectations. The urban mountain biking experience makes the transition to mountain biking (technical singletrack trail riding) seamless. Our experience and guidance teaches your kids the lifelong joy which can come from riding a bike. All leading to a happy and healthy day. For further individual or group development, on Saturday we offer Private Lesson Experiences.
Campers will participate in biking on Tuesday and Thursday Bike Tracks and Swim Day! Aspen Day Camp offers Urban Mountain Biking two days a week, as we believe in practice! Kids should come prepared with their own bike, helmet, snack and Camelbak with plenty of water. Bike gloves are recommended. Bike rentals are also available through ADC.
