Single Track Mountain Bike Adventures (SMBA)
Riders will explore new trails and trails close to home.
Spring: These after school and weekend rides are designed to get riders out on the trail, ready for summer and having fun. The session is 2 weeks shorter than the Boulder and has 1 snow day built in, because, well…this is Colorado after all.
Summer: Summer session is awesome. Each summer session includes advanced coaching, singletrack trail riding, community stewardship, “Big Buddy, Little Buddy” mentoring, special events, fun days, skills intensives, support at optional races and more. This session is perfect for riders that love to ride and never seem to want to stop. Riding 4 days a week for 4 weeks is a lot of riding so each week is designed with hard days, easier days, longer days, shorter days, skills days and fun days.
Fall: Fall session is great because the temperatures are cooler, the weather usually cooperates, the trails are mint, and the fun is endless.
If you have weekend, after school or summer commitments, check out the part time option and one day options. Riders may choose to sign up for just the weekday rides or the weekend rides in the spring and fall and they may choose to ride 8 or 16 days during the summer sessions.
