Winter Camps

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t ride your bike!



Participants will learn mountain bike basics ranging from how to climb, how to descend, cornering in switchbacks, proper body balancing on their bikes, and many other helpful riding skills. All of these camps will be held at our friend’s private property in Petaluma, which means we’ll have use of the sweet trails all to ourselves!

These camps are a great way for beginner riders to improve their skills, hang out with riders from other schools, and have a good time riding bikes! Hosted by NorCal League staff, guest skills instructors, and top-notch League coaches, these camps are a great way to kick off the 2020 season.

We’ve had camps up here for 9 years now, and are excited to share this special shreddy spot with riders in the NorCal League again in 2020. Participants will not only leave with more confident bike handling skills, but they’ll come home with that campfire scent on their cuff and at least a few new friends.

Student-athletes will split their time between learning professional mountain bike trail building technique and riding their bikes in some of the state’s most spectacular and rugged terrain. This exciting new camp will be held at the iconic Oakland Feather River Camp nestled in the Sierras in the beautiful mountain hamlet of Quincy, CA.  In addition to trail building and bike riding, campers will enjoy tent cabin accommodations, nutritious meals in the main dining hall, swimming in Spanish Creek, campfires, and an amazing bonus of receiving college credit from Feather River College! The camp will be limited to 25 people.  Click here for more information.

NorCal Bike-Pack



More info coming soon   We invite the female student-athletes of the NorCal League to come and explore the ridges around Mount Tamalapais with us this fall. Riders will get in a solid dirt ride that will navigate us from the Marin Headlands, over and around Mt. Tam, and down to the glittery Pacific waters as we nestle into Bolinas for the evening. This ride won’t be that technical, but is sure is hefty. With 4k feet climbing in the 25mi route, we expect those that sign up to be fit enough to complete it. We’ll all ride together but will forgo outside support. Our end point is Audubon Canyon Ranch in Bolinas, and, once we’re done with our evening activities, riders will be able to camp outside under apple trees or sleep in a wooden shelter with open windows and cots.
