Tahoe Trail Thrashers
The best kids summer mountain bike camp in Lake Tahoe
We will be hosting a 5 day camp focused on teaching the fundamentals of riding a mountain bike from the beginner to intermediate level. The purpose is to provide fun and educational mountain biking experience for kids of all levels through our certified coaches. We teach everything from basic body control to more advanced skills, as well as safety & etiquette. The focus is on learning new skills in a supportive environment that encourages participation with age appropriate coaching.
We will be riding some of the best trails around Lake Tahoe with the goal of learning about and mastering bike handling skills. Students will receive high quality instruction from an experienced & certified coach. In addition, participants will focus on developing their riding skills through challenging activities and games.
This is a great opportunity for children to gain self esteem in learning something new as well as make friends with other kids that have similar interests. Our experienced coaches teach the fundamentals of mountain biking in a fun and action packed environment to prepare the next generation of mountain bikers!
Our kids summer MTB camps are a FIVE DAY fundamentals course (10am-4pm) covering all the basics needed to shred your bike. We will be playing games and doing drills you can practice at home.
Each camp, your little shredder will receive professional coaching, life skills, meet new friends, learn how to work on the bike and how to handle hard trail situations with multiple options. At the end of camp each participant will receive a shredders diploma, gifts, goodies and the joy of experiencing the great outdoors as they should be. I stand by my camps and I know your child will learn and enjoy themselves at the same time. Let’s get it.
Participants (riders) must be able to ride standing up for 300+ feet and be able to ride uphill. We do not “teach kids how to ride a bike”, we develop mountain bike skills in kids and adults who can already ride a bike.
Registration closes two weeks before camp.
We need to have 5 riders participating to host each RAD CAMP. Why not get a group of friends together and get sendy with us? 50% deposit secures your spot!
Dependent Care FSA receipts are available on request for these camps.
Please note that we do not provide bikes or equipment.
Ronnie works to ensure the kids are responsible riders, teaches them the importance of being prepared out on the trails, and shares his love for the sport that all culminates in such a fun adventure! We will definitely be riding with Ronnie again!
Ronnie put together a great customized camp for under 12's. Almost all mountain bike camps are over 12, so we decided to work with Ronnie to set up a private session. 6 kids signed up and had an amazing time honing their mountain bike skills and have a great time. Lots of fun in nature, great rides and being able to hang with their buddies, make new buddies and support each other on the trails! My daughter LOVED every minute of it!
There were limited mountain bike camps in Tahoe doe the under 12’s, so we organized one for the younger kids with Ronnie! Absolutely amazing coach! 6 kids all had THE BEST TIME! All talked about how ‘rad’ it was, hard but fun.my daughter really enjoyed Ronnie as a coach and is even more motivated now to challenge herself more! I hope we can organize another camp next summer! Thanks again Ronnie!
