Frequently Asked Questions

303 Dirt sets up on the picnic tables right next to the parking lot off the AIRPORT ROAD entrance to Valmont Bike Park. Valmont Bike Park has two parking lots: one off Valmont Road on the South side of the park (skate park and dog park) and one off Airport Road on the West side of the park (small playground, grassy area and dirt jumps.)

Riders should bring a bike that fits correctly and is in working order with the tires pumped up. Riders will need to have a bike helmet and elbow and knee pads. Protection is not optional for any riding level or ability. 303 Dirt supplies riders with Gatorade Zero and will sometimes have snacks available but riders should bring their own water bottles and snacks if they need it. There is a water bottle filler and a water fountain at the bike park, as well as bathrooms for all riders.

Riders should arrive at least 10 minutes before start time in order to unload and unpack bikes, pads and helmets. 303 Dirt coaches will check riders in and take a look at bikes, pads and helmets to make sure that everything is in working order and fits properly. 303 Dirt can make small seat adjustments and pump up tires only. Please notify 303 Dirt coaches of any medical concerns, allergies, special needs and/or circumstances, etc. Once all riders have been checked in, 303 Dirt coaches will lead riders to the asphalt pump track to warm up with a few laps. During this time, coaches will assess each rider’s ability in order to start riders in the most appropriate level group. Kids learn quickly and skills improve dramatically so a rider who is inexperienced at the beginning of the week may have the opportunity to move to another group depending upon skills and confidence. Biking is fluid and kids are never “stuck” in a group that is not appropriate for their biking level.
303 Dirt coaches will have a first aid kit on hand at all times and riders will be treated for minor scrapes and cuts. For any injury requiring more than a few band aids, 303 Dirt will call parents and/or emergency contacts right away. Scrapes and cuts can be expected but serious injuries are avoided at all costs. Riders are encouraged to try new jumps and features only when 303 Dirt coaches feel that they have obtained the appropriate level of skill and are not too tired.
Riders should be picked up on time in order to give 303 Dirt coaches the ability to give feedback to all riders and their guardians in a timely manner. Pick up is in the same spot as drop off: at the picnic tables next to the parking lot off the AIRPORT ROAD entrance to Valmont Bike Park. If your child loved their session, please register for more!
At the end of each session, parents will have the opportunity to talk to 303 Dirt coaches to learn how their child performed that day. Coaches will review what the kids did, what they accomplished, things to be psyched about, things to work on and any other questions or concerns that riders and/or guardians may have. Guardians can always follow up anytime via email: info@303dirt.com.

Helmet and pads are mandatory for all bike camps and can be purchased in bicycle shops and online.
Some name brand bike pads for kids include: Simply Kids, G-Form and 7iDP and many of these can be found at local bike shops and Amazon.com.
There are several bike helmet brands out there that can also be found in local bike shops, REI and amazon.com. We suggest buying a helmet in person so you can get the fit just right. A regular bike helmet works great for beginner and intermediate levels and full face helmets are encouraged for experienced riders that are tackling the BIG (M, L and XL) dirt jumps!

We love the The Fix Bikes which is right next to Valmont Bike Park but be aware that they open at noon on week days.

You can find the latest trail conditions on the Valmont Bike Park FaceBook page. Fortunately, it’s updated quite often.

What People Are Saying

“Gurion has been instrumental in building our son’s skills to match his confidence so he can safely take on the jumps and trails he wants to ride! The coaches all take the time to really get to know kids and make them feel welcome, and they keep pushing my son to the next level with careful guidance and a lot of laughter.

He [my son] counts down the days every year until the season starts again! If you’re looking for the perfect mix of fun and work, and a coach who will bring out the best in your kid, you’ve come to the right place.”
