Do you want to see some of camp, but don't like to walk and you can't stand the smell of horses? Well then hop on a mountain bike and go for a ride.
We have a number of Cannondale camp bikes for your use. If you want to bring up your own bike, you are perfectly welcome to do so. We do require that all bikes be collected during check-in and locked up in our mountain bike shed when not in use. Bikes can only be used during trail ride or skill session times. Helmets will be worn at all times when riding a bike, personal or camp owned. Bring yours if you prefer.
The mountain bike program offers an extensive trail system with nine miles of hand-built, singletrack trails and seven miles of fire road. Trails and roads are rideable for all skill levels. The program area includes a pump-track, dirt jumps, and North Shore obstacles. All forms of our obstacles are designed for safety and to challenge the Scout's skills. Trail building instructional sessions and service projects are available as well, listen for them at camp or ask the biking staff.
Want to ride our trails, but you are not a Scout or in a unit that is coming to Wente? If you are a boy 11-20 or a girl 14-20, you can come as a provisional or come as staff and just ride and do trail work.
For more information on the Mountain Biking program visit Bike Wente's webpage.
Bikes cannot be used for transportation around camp or for the Kali-Ama or King Kali-Ama Trails.
