Mountain Biking Camp Orinda - 2nd to 7th Grade - Day Camp

Campers experience the thrill of learning mountain biking as they hit the trails in our Mountain Biking summer camp. With help from our seasoned instructors, campers spend the week practicing mountain biking skills, learning bicycle maintenance basics, and traversing the terrain in the area’s best parks and trails.

Your campers’ adventures are carefully customized so they progress as their comfort and skill level grow. We also group them by grade range – 2nd – 4th graders or 5th – 7th graders – to be sure they’re in good company as they build confidence and further their mastery of mountain biking.

Please note: We strongly encourage campers to use their own bikes. Bikes should be tuned, fit campers well and be appropriate for riding on dirt trails (including hand brakes and wider tires). If your camper needs a bike, you may rent one; please select this option during registration.

In order to register for this program, campers MUST be able to bike confidently without training wheels on a dirt surface. If a camper does not meet this minimum skill requirement, we reserve the right to move a camper to a different program (if space is available) or remove the camper from the group and offer a credit.

Technical Skills

Trail Riding

Bike Maintenance

Campers learn how to properly fit a helmet and bike, practice basic bike commands and get comfortable with technical skills including bunny hops, track stands, braking and shifting, becoming more proficient riders as they take on incremental challenges.

We introduce campers to a range of trails where they practice good trail etiquette as they learn to ride on rolling single and double track terrain, descending and ascending trail sections and narrow and winding trails.

When they’re not riding, campers get familiar with the nuts and bolts of bike maintenance, learning to safety check their bikes, solve gear problems and change flat tires.

Why Sign Up For Multiple Sessions?

Based on our experience (and a bunch of brain science), we know that multiple sessions of Avid camp will benefit your child – it will result in greater skill development, increased self-confidence, higher levels of risk assessment/environmental awareness, and an improved ability to connect socially with others and make new friends.


While no outdoor adventure is totally risk-free, we work hard to keep your kids safe. Every activity starts with a discussion about the risks involved -- what they are, how to prevent them, how to respond if something goes wrong -- so kids learn how to approach challenges with intelligence and skill.
