A Youth Summer Camp with Triangle Bikeworks

Bikers meet daily at 115 W. Main St in Carrboro
If you are a beginning to intermediate level cyclist between ages 10 and 14 who loves to ride your bike and challenge yourself while learning new skills and having a blast — this is the camp for you! The Summer BikeCamp takes place the week after school lets out and is about as much fun as you can possibly have on a bike! Days begin with basic skills work such as shifting and braking, and progress to corning, navigating obstacles and safe cycling before applying all of those new-found techniques on fun, single track trails and bike lanes.
After two days of learning, laughing, and riding, bikers move to Abundance NC to learn the right way to mess around in the woods, be a good steward of the forest, eco systems and nature and, above all else, cooking. By Thursday you will ride to your heart’s content and camp out under the stars while preparing a meal over a fire. The hope is that you’ll never want to go a day without riding your bike again!
Bike Camp is open for everyone at $190 per camper. For families requesting a scholarship, please contact Kevin Hicks at 919-408-7513.
Parents should show ID to match with their child. Child should be 10yrs or older.
Transportation is provided by Triangle Bikeworks. Children should be dropped off and picked up at the offices of 115 W. Main St in Carrboro.
About Triangle Bikeworks:
Triangle Bikeworks is a nonprofit youth leadership program. Programs are designed to inspire high potential youth from environments and homes with few resources to pursue personal success. We prepare them for leadership roles in their community while motivating them to be role models for others. We do this by engaging students from under-resourced homes in three to four years of intense leadership experiences including year round development programs, year round cycling activities, community service projects locally, regionally, and nationally, and preparation for continuing education and career development. Our mission is to create a challenge for our youth cyclists to think outside of traditional methods of excelling while finding ways to contribute to their community in positive ways. This gives the youth cyclists an opportunity to experience the natural world from the seat of a bike and to develop an appreciation of our open spaces.
