Mt Tam Bikes Camp is a year-round mountain biking day camp for novice to advanced participants ages 8-14. Located in Mill Valley, California, our non-competitive program is designed to meet each rider at their ability. We teach mountain biking, taking our fun as seriously as our safety. Mt Tam Bikes Camp is about connecting kids with nature, building confidence, gaining knowledge and making new friends. 

We are seasoned experts in the coaching, guiding and safety techniques that we have developed and refined over the past 11 years. With a supportive, thoughtful and creative approach, we keep campers engaged while safely progressing their skills. Transporting to new ride destinations each day keeps things fresh, diverse and developmentally appropriate. Come explore the best trails in Marin County.

Riders practice everything from proper uphill and downhill body position, braking and shifting to wheel lifts and bunny hops. With a strong focus on trail etiquette, local ecology, and bike mechanics, our riders become conscientious, controlled and self-confident cyclists. Your kids might try to coach you after riding with us.
