Mountain Bike Camps

BetterRide Mountain Bike Skills Coaching, Camps and Clinics have been designed to teach you how to ride faster, more efficient, balanced, in control and of coarse how to have more fun! Are you ready to create a BetterRide, come join us.

Cross Country Race Camp

Race faster, ride with more confidence, ride more efficiently, and shave minutes off your times! The best athletes across all sports disciplines spend less than 20% of their training time actually doing the sport, the other 80% of their time is spent on structured drills to master the core, fundamental skills of the sport.

Women’s MTB Camp

BetterRide women’s only camp, clinic and skills coaching covers the same core skills as the co-ed camps in a supportive, non-judgmental atmosphere. This can be very beneficial as it invites students to push their limits without feeling intimidated.
