While browsing over the Trek/Gary Fisher bikes I mentioned this morning, I came across the Trek Dirt Series. These skills camps seem to be held all over the west coast & parts of Canada. There are women’s only and co-ed versions. My question goes back to the title of this post, would you goto a skills camp?
Around Charlotte There is the Dirt Divas
The local women’s mountain bike group, the Dirt Diva’s have a weekly group ride for various levels and a monthly skills clinic. Several of these ladies have told me about a camp they would go to in Whistler for big hit skills. I’m a chicken with no money or time to travel and learn how to jump off things. My skills are earned, riding with friends, testing my insurance plan and well…growing some courage.
Over 5,000 Ultra-Satisfied Participants
The Trek Dirt Series claims to have 5,000 satisfied participants. I wish I could see the demographics and travel time for their participants. Would it be worth the travel/hassle and logistics?
Would You Go?
Do you love mountain biking and have a budget to play with? Would something like this excite you?
