Ages 13-17: The Camp KickaPedal Epic

Monday, August 15, 2022    10am-4pm

The Kickapedal Epic is a one-day epic mountain bike ride covering most of the natural surface trails that the Kickapoo Valley Reserve has open to mountain bikers. This guided ride will take riders up and down and all across the KVR with strategic stops along the way to learn basic riding skills, trailside repair and trail building techniques. We will even have a fun skills park to stop and try for a while, which includes ramps, skinnies and teeter totters. Lunch will be provided at about the halfway point. 

This epic ride is for riders ages 13 and up (younger children may be considered upon consultation with Team Bluedog and adults are welcome). Important to know, this ride will exceed 20 miles across moderate to advanced trails. This ride is for intermediate to advanced riders. Riders must come equipped with a working mountain bike in need of no repairs, a properly fitting helmet, weather and cycling-appropriate clothing and footwear and hydration system of their choosing with lots of fluids. Strongly suggested: bring the appropriate tools respective to the chosen bike (i.e. flat repair kit and multi-tool) and any additional trail snacks preferred beyond the one-time stop for lunch.

Instructor: Pete Taylor has been playing in the woods on mountain bikes since the 80's. He started coaching and running mountain bike camps in Idaho about 20 years ago and had so much fun with kids on bikes that he never stopped. He moved with his family to the area 16 years ago and created the very popular Camp Bluedog Weekend Mountain Bike Adventure which has hosted over 800 kids since the first year. Pete and his crew of coaches are professionally trained, first-aid certified, and huge kids-at-heart themselves.
