Take your riding to the next level and ride steeper, faster and bigger than ever before! These great camps for young biking enthusiasts were launched in 2012 and have been incredibly popular ever since.
To achieve these aims, most of the camps are limited to those who are already confident riding steep single track trails with rocks, roots and small drops in most conditions as well as taking some air. New for 2019 we are introducting an 11-15 MTB Adventure for intermediate riders to build on the their skillset. We're also running a Gravity Juniors camp for younger riders to use as a stepping stone to progress their riding, and a girls only Gravity Camp for female riders to learn from a female coach.
You will be asked, when booking, where you are currently riding and where you have ridden recently. You may well be currently taking part in a regional or national race series.
If you would like to use one of these camps as your Gold DofE Residential, please let the office team know when booking.
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.

Given the focus of these camps, a downhill bike is very strongly recommended. You won't get as much out of the camp with a shorter travel bike.
