MOUNTAIN BIKING AT YMCA CAMP INGERSOLL
YMCA Camp Ingersoll is excited to start its fourth season of Mountain Biking! This program will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting September 23rd and ending October 28th.
This program is available to anyone between the ages of 9 -13. The cost per session is $100 for Y Members, $125 for Program Members, and $150 for Non Y Members.
We will hold two practices per week (Tuesdays and Thursdays) from 4:30 -6:00 pm. Tuesday practices (and the first Thursday practice on September 23rd) will be held at camp, while Thursday practices (except for the first Thursday 9/23) will meet at local parks or riding spots (Portland Reservoir, Hurd State Park, Millers Pond, etc. . .).
Individuals are encouraged to use their own mountain bikes throughout the program. Participants should wear comfortable athletic clothing while preparing to ride rain or shine. Riders should bring waterbottles, an extra bike tube, snacks if desired, a helmet that fits, and riding gloves (gardening/work/thin ski liners also work).
Throughout the session we will be focusing on body position, bike set up, switching gears, traversing obstacles, and riding in all conditions!
