Thanks to the success of our Spring 2022 mini gravel camp The Amy D. Foundation is excited to announce that we are now accepting scholarship applications to our second 2022 Mini Gravel Camp set to run October 7-9, in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Massanetta Springs, Virginia. The camp will once again work in conjunction with sponsors Starlight Apparel, The Black Bibs and local Virginia bicycle shop Carytown Bicycle Company. 

The camp is open to Femme, Trans, Women and Non Binary riders and seeks to foster the development of beginner and intermediate riders looking to elevate their skills and confidence riding off road. The camp will feature multiple days of gravel riding, team building, nutrition/ hydration plans for riding and racing, skills clinics for optimal riding on gravel and basic mechanics of gravel bikes. The camp will culminate with a community ride on Sunday, October 9th. The scholarship will provide riders with housing and nutritional and mechanical support throughout the camp.

Riders must have working knowledge of basic bike handling and riding skills, a gravel bike or equivalent bike, the ability to complete 50-60 mile rides and be able to maintain 10-12.5 mph on gravel rides. 

Additionally, riders must be vaccinated against COVID and willing to take COVID tests prior to day of arrival for camp and mask during travel and when appropriate at camp.

Applications will be accepted until August 22nd and ten scholarship recipients will be selected and notified August 29th. You can check out how our first camp went here For additional details please reach out to julie@amydfoundation.org
