Travel Camp

The true spirit of mountain biking is being out in the woods with your friends and having a great time while challenging yourself and becoming stronger; and it is those things that Travel Camp is all about. While we cover performance-related topics like pacing, climbing and descending technique, and nutrition Рas well as hold dedicated skills lessons Рour primary objective is to experience mile after mile of the greatest trails in the southeast! With that, every year campers are surprised with just how much stronger they have become and how much their skills have advanced by the end of the week. Multiple hours on the bike fly by, especially when taking in new trails each day. Then, when you actually sit down and add up all the hours and miles your rode over the course of the camp, it is no secret why you made the improvements you did!

Below is a list of the amazing trail networks we intend to visit. Keep in mind that responsible use of these trails is weather dependent, so it is always possible that plans will change during the camp.

Miller School of Albemarle Campus Trails

1600 scenic acres at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains with over 14 miles of student-built trails. New features include bike-specific skills parks and wooden wall-rides! Miller School Campus Trails are on private land, so campers get to enjoy a truly unique and exclusive cycling experience!

Douthat State Park

A member of IMBA’s coveted list of Hall of Fame Epic Rides, Douthat State Park is as good as big mountain gets anywhere in the world, and it is right here in our back yard! Proof that you need the Rocky Mountains or Europe’s Alps to climb all morning and descend all afternoon!

Preddy Creek

Some of the best multipurpose trails you will find anywhere. Mainly machine-built, the primary loop is a roller coaster ride of a good time, and a newly-completed Advanced Loop presents challenges that will test the skills of even the most experienced mountain bikers.

Fountainhead Regional Park

You would never imagine that mountain biking of this quality existed so close to one of the largest metropolitan areas in the country, but it does! With a stacked-loop layout that welcomes beginner though advanced riders, you need only ride the first 200 yards before you are grinning from ear to ear and itching to ride the remaining miles of trail!
