Wish you could be a kid again?  Here is your chance! Take an Adult Ayr Academy session this season.

About Adult Ayr:

Take your riding to the next level with this 3-day camp featuring Highland’s professional coaches and guest pro riders made up of today’s top athletes. Each session, we see a wide range of men and women campers. Adult Ayr Academy caters to both experienced park riders and cross country mountain bikers who are new to bike park riding. Our expert staff will help you refine your skills to develop you as a rider. No matter your ability level, if you like to ride we can teach you to do it better and more safely.

Every session of Adult Ayr Academy starts with a focus on mountain bike core skills. Day one begins with introductions, bike checks, and riding positions. Building on a solid foundation, we’ll turn the focus to advanced cornering techniques, wheel lifts, jumps, and drops for the weekend. If you want to learn how to hit some of Highland’s signature features, we will focus on the skill set needed to conquer them!

Thank you so much for putting on such a high level of Adult Ayr Camp. Your attention to detail and passion show in all you do. I learned so much and hope to return for more instruction. Highland Camps are a wonderful source of progression and I am thankful for the experience.

Thanks so much for an incredible weekend of progression and fun.  I’ve gotten to ride a few times since and am stoked on how I’m riding after the instruction of the weekend.  There’s no question you’ll be getting some sign-ups from my riding buddies that want to see the same progress (and want to catch back up! haha).

Wanted to take a minute to say thank you again. These last three days were absolutely incredible and completely changed my outlook on what’s possible on a bike. Your coaching not only helped my technical goals, but also helped me understand the power of the mental game!
