Summer Camp - TICKNOCK

We've put together an intensive '3 Day' Summer Mountain Bike Skills Camp for kids between 11 and 15 years old. There are two venues to choose from, Ballinastoe in County Wicklow or Ticknock in Dublin. Each location has over 14km of exciting purpose built mountain bike trails. Participants don't need to have a lot of mountain biking experience to join us, however they must be fully comfortable cycling. The aim of the camp is to develop your mountain biking skills and awareness in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

For your peace of mind; all of our instructors are fully qualified in the Mountain Bike Leadership Award scheme, Garda vetted and have completed the Code of Ethics in Children's Sport. Over the years we have devised action packed games which develop cycling skills in a fun and inclusive way.
