Mountain Bike Skills
During Bike School Bentonville Spring Break and Summer Camps, riders will be coached by trained Bike School Bentonville coaches on a variety of mountain bike skills so they can become safe and confident riders. Fundamental Skills include:
- Ready/neutral position for descending hills
- Side/Side bike body separation
- Pedaling/shifting efficiently
- Controlling speed and braking safely
- Cornering confidently
- Handling obstacles and rocky terrain
- Riding with vision
- Ratcheting and momentum
Camps are available for kids 6-13 years old. Participants will be evaluated on the first day and placed into groups based on skill and age. For a full description of our mountain bike skill level progression, view the TRAIL KIDS MTB Skill Level Guide.
Participants will need their own mountain bike, helmet, and water bottle carrier to participate. Bikes need to have front and back wheel brakes on the handle bars (no pedal brakes or kickstands allowed). Tires must have tread and be wide enough to ride safely on mountain bike trails.
Camps are ages 6 – 13, beginner to advanced abilities welcome (we split into different coaching groups based on ability, fitness, age, and friend request – friends who are of different riding abilities may not be placed together).
