Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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.
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.”
