Event Description

“Whether your interest is getting faster on easier trails, or riding the most difficult trails up and down with more control and performance, I can help. By teaching in 15 states, Brazil, and the Dominican Republic over the last 7 years, I’ve helped around six hundred and fifty riders become more confident and skilled all-around riders.” - Lon Cullen

IS THIS CAMP RIGHT FOR YOU?

Basic fitness level and basic bike control skills are required for learning the skills portion of this camp.  We will spend most of our time near Mulberry Gap working on skills.  There will be an optional trail ride away from Mulberry Gap on Saturday and Sunday.  No new skills will be taught on these trail rides, so should you choose not to go on these trail rides, for whatever reason, you will not miss any new information.  You would just miss applying the information that everyone has learned on those trails. Lon strongly recommends that you have a dropper post to get the most from this clinic.

GO ON THE SHUTTLED GROUP RIDES OR PRACTICE AT MULBERRY GAP?

Even with the shuttles, these trail rides have proven to be too physically demanding for at least one person participating in several of the camps that we have led, so we would like everyone to consider carefully if you’re in good shape for the trails or would like to stay and practice on-site at Mulberry Gap.  If you have not been riding regularly, for example, about 17 miles with 1500 feet of climbing per ride at least once a week, then you would have a better experience staying at Mulberry Gap and working on your skills on the trail there.  These rides are too remote to do them "off the couch.” Those who are unprepared end up not having a great time way out there; and the group who has been working towards being fit for the ride can't have as much fun waiting too long on someone.  Bear Creek, Pinhoti 1 and 2, even with a shuttle, is 1700 feet of climbing and 14.5 miles of riding.  We just want everyone to have fun!!  If you have any questions, please contact Lon at [email protected].
