Applications are now open for our second annual Spring mini gravel camp! The camp is set to run March 17-19 in the Blue Ridge Mountains of the Roanoke Virginia area. After receiving feedback from previous campers, our spring camp will be dedicated to intermediate riders looking to continuing to develop their skills and confidence off road. The camp routes feature over 12,000 feet of climbing for the weekend. Our FALL CAMP will be dedicated to new gravel riders looking to attain new skills to enjoy all that gravel riding has to offer with less emphasis on climbing and technical descending.
The camp will feature a day of instruction and sessioning gravel sections on Friday to assess skill levels and work on honing correct positioning on bike, movement of body and general comfort on more technical courses. Saturday will be the camps “big dumb ride” with multiple large gravel sectors, large amounts of climbing, beautiful gravel and paved roads and some really great store stops to fuel up. Day three will feature roads just north of our housing in Natural Bridge, VA and will include lots of cows, beautiful views, all the gravel you could want and a few of our prior gravel camp participants from 2022.
Scholarship recipients will receive housing, nutrition support, mechanical support, nutrition plans and nutrition seminar from our resident nutritionist Kristen Arnold and on the bike instruction from several experienced volunteer staff.
