Strathcona-Tweedsmuir Bike Camp
STS Bike Camp
Bike Camp - Maintenance, Cycle Touring, and Trailriding
Two Wheel View will be offering a 4 day bicycle mechanics and trail-riding skills course in partnership with Strathcona Tweedsmuir School’s (STS) summer programming. Participants will receive 4 days of basic bike mechanics skills, including how to change a flat tire, adjust brakes, and diagnose shifting issues. These highly applicable maintenance skills will be paired with an introduction to self-supported bicycle touring and the basics of trail-riding. All rides will be held on STS’s local trail system. All tools and stands will be provided with the option to rent a bike through our program partner Ridley’s Cycle. We encourage participants to bring their own bike if they have a mountain bike capable of riding dirt/gravel singletrack. Registration deadline is July 31, 2020 - space is available on a first come first served basis.

Location: Strathcona-Tweedsmuir Campus (South of Calgary)
