Campers are welcome to bring multiple bikes, eg: xc bike, BMX, DH bike, dj bike
However, if the campers has both a Dirt Jumper and another bike, the dirt jumper can be left with dirt jump tires.
BMX are not meant for mountain biking but for street and dirt.
BMXs with pegs are not accepted, we can remove them upon arrival at camp.
However, for the purposes of learning, we recommend flat pedals as the ideal way to learn true bike technique. Some pedals are available at camp for lend or sale.
The small helmet is used for day to day activities and riders. The full face is mandatory for downhill activities.
The forearm and elbow are vulnerable also, however elbow pads have a tendency of moving around and sliding down during riding. They are good to have but not as important as the leg pad.
They help with scrapes and bruises and help avoid things related to rash and the abrasive ground; overall, avoids small to minor injuries. Real protection comes from gradual, progressive learning and confident riding.
