Hey everybody! :D

I wanted to pass along some information about Trek Dirt Series Camps to help your progression as a rider, no matter what level you're at! A weekend format that balances structure with flexibility. Between the extensive skill sessions, the instructional rides, and the bike fit and maintenance seminars, riders of every level have the chance to learn, improve, and perfect their technique.

The Dirt Series began in 2000 in BC in an effort both to bring more women into the sport and to fuel the passion of those already committed to it. In the eleven years following, it has expanded from its Whistler base throughout B.C. and Alberta and into Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Utah and Colorado. It has added in some co-ed programs to its original women's only camps, combined with some incredible industry partners, and developed to a point where it presents between 15 and 20 camps annually- and with 2 new sites added thanks to Trek- Winter Park, CO, and Portland, OR. Many have pro riders as instructors (in the past, Geoff Gulevich, Andres Hestler and Wade Simmons have taught-- Wade even set up my bike with me).

Sign-ups just started Feb. 1st for the 2011 season. I went to several camps and ended their season at the co-ed Whistler Camp and I'm stoked with how my riding skills have jumped! You get a great deal of personal attention and you leave feeling like it's money well-spent. I'll list the classes below and other links to contact them. Send them questions- and me- if you have any!!

Hey Scootergal,
Don't discount the ones in Colorado (Fruita/Winter Park)! It is definitely worth the drive up! The ones I've attended have been 1. Near LA, CA which they don't have anymore 2. San Rafael, CA (near San Fran) 3. Whistler, Brittish Columbia, CAN and I live near the US/Mexico border in San Diego!

They're on the weekends and you get to ride in places you don't always get to check out. Do send it to glyphs sister, definitely, but also consider them for yourself!
