While Winthrop is known in the winter for its great cross-country skiing network, in the summer the miles of trail turn into mountain biking joy. Longer rides offer access to the higher alpine and stunning panoramic views, while others twist and turn, winding through the valley, wooded areas, and streams.
Winthrop is a great camp location if you're looking for a cross-country or all-mountain experience, or even some introductory air oriented instruction in the mornings followed by some fun pedaling in the afternoons. In Winthrop you'll find fast flowing singletrack, swooping corners, fun climbs and descents, and some rooty and rocky sections too.
We run our morning skill development sessions on the field just across the road from Methow Cycle & Sport , and then head out to a variety of different trails for our afternoon instructional rides. These include both new and longstanding trails at Sun Mountain, as well as trips to Bear Mountain and Buck Mountain too.
Winthrop is a beautiful northwest spot, this is the perfect time of year to visit, and the hospitality -- including an evening session featuring a fresh salmon BBQ and live music -- is second to none. We look forward to seeing you there.
During the camp weekend, Methow Cycle & Sport is offering participants 20% off parts and accessories, and rental bikes for $50/day. To reserve a rental bike for camp, please contact the shop directly at 509-996-3645.
