About the Camps

Take your riding to the next level and get ready for the race season!  The original Gravity Camps for young biking enthusiasts were launched in 2012 but due to popular demand have developed into enduro specific weekends.  Whether you’ve been on one of our Gravity Camps before, want to keep your training up during the winter or don’t race regularly but want to improve your skills, then join us on this new camp.

Leave your downhill bike at home and bring your trail bike instead! 

If you'd prefer a coaching camp with an uplift instead of pedalling back to the top, have a look at our Gravity Camps

What will I learn?

  • You will develop plenty of new skills and ideas
  • You will benefit from the buzz of riding and hanging out with similar age and similar standard riders
  • We will help you to put together a personal development plan for the week and there will be daily review sessions to help you reach your goals
  • With this personal development in mind, there will also be an evening group discussion time where we will be linking moral dilemmas with Bible references in a relevant way

To achieve these aims, the camps are limited to those aged 11-16 who are already confident riding steep single track trails with rocks, roots and small drops in most conditions as well as taking some air.  You will be asked, when booking, where you are currently riding and where you have ridden recently.  As enduro is a racing format, you may well be currently taking part in a regional or national race series.

What is included in the price?

  • Full board dorm style accommodation
  • Bike coaching programme, with instruction
  • Maintenance tuition
  • Evening programme
  • Abernethy team member supervision for the duration of the camp
  • Secure overnight bike storage & bike wash facility

What will I need to bring?

  • A suitable trail bike
  • Helmet
  • Gloves
  • Suitable clothing and waterproofs
  • Swim kit
  • Body armour is optional, but knee pads are strongly recommend
  • At least 2 spare inner tubes
  • Spare brake pads
  • A small amount of pocket money (optional)

Who is in charge?

During instructed sessions, expert coaches (to be announced) will be tutoring and Abernethy staff will be accompanying the sessions.

In non-instructed time, Abernethy staff will be supervising you and organising activities.  From making sure you make a packed lunch and respect the centre and its facilities to joining in with the coaching sessions, our team will generally be looking out for you during your time away from home.
