Kimberley / Cranbrook

Kids Camps, Weekly Lessons and Adult Courses

Something for Everyone

NEW for 2023 – Ridetheory is so excited to have the opportunity to expand to the Cranbrook and Kimberley areas. 

For our first year, we will be offering a couple of kids camps ages 5-13 (exceptions apply based on skill level). These 3-5 day camps are designed to prepare our youth for trail riding for years to come. The kids will have a chance to work with different coaches who will fine tune each participant’s personal challenges on a bike and develop good habits. 

We will focus on basic body positioning and balance then advance the skills into uphill and downhill travel. From here, the skills will continue to progress into cornering, basic braking techniques and safe trail etiquette. 

The kids will make new shred buddies who share the same passion for the outdoors. For our future shredders of Kimberley, this camp is the perfect base of the pyramid for mountain bike development!

Note: We know that our selection is a bit more limited this year but we will continue to add dates as our staffing allows. Please contact us if you’d like to be on the notification email list or if there are any other programs that you’d like to see. We will try to accommodate your requests in the upcoming years!
