2019 Brevard (North Carolina) MTB Camp

When: April 13 to 22, 2019

Where: Brevard, North Carolina

We rode on some of the best trails on the Eastern part of the continent. Western North Carolina's mountains contain some of the best mountain biking to be found anywhere. Gravel roads that wind along lazy streams through forested valleys, or trails that climb up steep mountainsides; trails that cross 5,000 foot mountain peaks or singletrack that traverses long, narrow ridgelines: all are here within the boundaries of the Old North State. Whatever you're looking for, be it a gentle cruise to a beautiful picnic spot, or a rugged descent on technical single track, you've chosen a great place to experience it all.

 

Here is a sneak peak of what we experienced: 

 

We enjoyed professional service and world class coaching during this camp. For this first camp, we had 10 riders. 

 

We were lodged in a nice house with all necessary amenities.  Meals were prepared and served at the lodging place.

 

A typical training day in Brevard: 

  • 8 am breakfast 

  • 10 am ride departure
