Los Gatos, California
Saturday-Sunday, May 11-12, 2013
Being in Los Gatos feelings like being on vacation. Maybe that's not the case for those who work in town day in and day out, but for us it certainly is.
We start our camp days at Summit Bicycles, which is one of the most welcoming shops ever, and then drive over to Belgatos Park for the morning skill sessions. In the afternoons we head out to a variety of different trails in Santa Teresa Park, Saratoga Gap, and the Soquel Demo Forest too.
The trails in Santa Teresa Park are often used for product development tests and industry demos, and offer beginner, intermediate, and advanced options, with a variety of loops, and unique technical rocky sections too.
Saratoga Gap offers great beginner and intermediate cross-country riding including switchbacks, challenging climbs and descents, and beautiful views as well.
And the Soquel Demo Forest serves it up for the high intermediate and advanced riders with steeps, berms, built features, and drops. As at the Santa Cruz camp, this is our Sunday option, complete with shuttles in order to maximize instructional time on the trail.
