If you have specific questions about our policies, please reach out to us at llwoodbury@icloud.com. We are happy to assist you.

    • If a participant shows up with signs of sickness, we will ask them to seek medical attention and not attend the camp.
    • It’s so tempting to hug and high five to celebrate our accomplishments but please refrain….fist bumps and cheers allowed, but please keep the minimum distance requested.
    • Social distancing will be maintained whenever possible, according to the recommendations of the CDC of six feet.
    • Coaches will guide each participant to perform their own bike and equipment check. In the event that a coach needs to touch a student’s bike to help with set-up or repair, they will do so at a safe distance from the participant and sanitize properly before and after.

Let’s go have some fun, learn some skills, and get out mountain biking!
