BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Recreation & Parks Department and instructors Michael Davern and Kristine Reilly will be holding a Mountain Biking Camp for those in grades four through eight.

Camp will run August 21-25 (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) from 5 to 7 p.m. Participants will meet at the lower parking lot of Living Memorial Park. The fee for this program is $60 for Brattleboro residents and $75 for non-residents. Participants must have their own bikes.

Participants will learn how changes in body position, footwork and the direction they are looking affect the way their bike behaves. Rides will take place on local terrain and trails. Those planning to attend must have their own bike.
