Building confidence, fueling success, and enriching lives through mountain biking
The Dirt Series is the instructional program that we, as coaches, wish had existed when we started to mountain bike. Come to think of it, it’s the kind of camp we’d all still love to take, because honestly, there’s no end to the joy that comes from learning.
The Dirt Series began in 2000 as a BC provincial development initiative, an effort both to bring more women into the sport and to fuel the passion of those already committed to it.
In the thirteen 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 to 20 camps annually.
Everywhere the program has gone, it has left a community of inspired mountain bikers in its wake. From those picking up mountain biking as a new outdoor sport, to those breaking through barriers after years of experience, the Dirt Series has created a legacy of fun, support, energy, and success.
- Coaches who love what they do. Our staff includes not only an impressive set of sports and education resumes, but also an exceptional ability to teach skills and inspire progress.
- A weekend format that balances structure with flexibility. Between the extensive skill sessions, the instructional rides, and the bike set up and maintenance seminars, riders of every level have the chance to learn, improve, and perfect their technique.
- The best participants a program could ask for. Whether first timers looking for fundamentals or freeride rippers wanting to dial in advanced skills, our participants come to the camp eager to learn, excited to meet new people, and committed to making the camp weekends as fun and successful as possible.
- And fantastic sponsors. A quick look at our prices, and a few thoughts on the costs involved in running a professional traveling program, make it quite clear that without their support, we simply wouldn't be able to do things the way that we do.
We are so happy to be able to run the Trek Dirt Series program, and thank you very much for your interest. We definitely hope to see you on the trails this summer.
