The 2 Day Camp will meet at Phil’s Trailhead for most of the weekend, with the exception of Saturday after lunch.

On Saturday after lunch some of the 2 Day Camp participants will meet at 7th Mountain Resort and some will meet at the Lair. Your instructor will let you know where your group is meeting. See below for directions to each.

The Liar

  • Continue just like you’re going to Phil’s trailhead but keep going past Phil’s following the dirt road ~1.7 miles until you reach the Lair parking lot.

  • **Leave extra time to get to the parking lot as the dirt road is pretty narrow and slow going.

WHAT TO BRING

  • BIKE in good, working order

  • Plenty of water and snacks
  • We highly recommend you wear pads!
  • If you’re coming for the whole day bring a LUNCH, or plan to find a quick, nearby eatery.
  • Please have a face cover accessible on you or in your pack (E.g. mask, bandana, buff) for any circumstance where a 6 foot distance can not be maintained.
  • Be sure to check the weather forecast before you come and dress for the conditions. We recommend sunscreen. The temps are looking cooler this weekend, so wear some layers you can shed as the day warms up. Sunday has a small chance of some light, spotty rain, so we recommend bringing a rain jacket just in case.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What kind of pedals should I have on my bike?

We recommend you ride whatever pedals you’re most comfortable with. However, we have found that it’s much easier to learn the majority of the skills with flat pedals if you have some experience on them.

Do I need pads?

Pads are not mandatory at any of our clinics or camps, but we highly recommend you bring (and use) them.  We’ve seen a set of pads give our participants that added level of safety and comfort needed for them to have a light-bulb breakthrough moment.

Should I tip my instructors?

While gratuity is not required or expected,  it’s certainly appreciated by your instructors! 5-10% for each guest is Industry Standard for exceptional service, support, and expertise. Unless you’d like to tip separately, instructors divide tips among themselves.

COVID 19 

Our event is on and following local guidelines for COVID 19. Our instructors have been educated on industry standard COVID 19 guidelines as published by BICP and PMBIA.  Please be informed as to any local COVID 19 restrictions that may apply to your travel to and from the event. 

  • If you are sick, stay home.
  • Please have a face cover accessible on you or in your pack (E.g. mask, bandana, buff) for any circumstance where a 6 foot distance can not be maintained (first aid scenarios, check-in, taking shelter from rain, etc.)
  • We recommend carrying a small bottle of hand sanitizer in your pack.
