Bring a regular cross-country / all-mountain helmet for pedal oriented skills and rides. Make sure you have a hydration pack or bottles so that you have lots of water during the day. We'll provide lunches both days, and you may want to bring some light snacks to keep you fueled throughout the skills and drills and on trail riding sessions. Remember sunscreen and mosquito repellent. Have your bike checked over by a mechanic before you come to camp, so that you can be sure that it's in great working order. Bring a spare tube in case you get a flat tire, and basic riding tools if you have them. If you don't already have basic riding tools, don't worry. The coaches all have supplies, and we offer a participant discount if you want to purchase your own during camp. Bring a set of leg and arm pads if you have them, or borrow them from a friend if possible. Bring a pair of flat pedals if you have them, as they make it easier for any level of rider to learn and practice new skills. If you're married to your clipless pedals, you can always try the morning sessions on flats and then switch back for your afternoon ride. Bring shoes that are compatible with the pedals you'll be using. If you are using clipless pedals, even if they have wide platforms, you must use shoes with cleats. If you are using flat pedals, you must use soft soled flat shoes without cleats; skate shoes and tennis shoes, without high arches and without deep ridges, work the best.
