The Kelly Brush Foundation is excited to announce the 2nd annual KBF Adaptive Mountain Bike Camp taking place September 27-30, 2022. This opportunity will engage and bring together the SCI community to build camaraderie and gain further independence in adaptive sports.
This year’s camp will focus on creating an opportunity for those who have previously received grant funding or otherwise acquired an off-road handcycle to level up their skills and get to know their own equipment.
Eligibility: Individuals with paralysis caused by spinal cord injury who reside in the United States. Other conditions are not eligible for this program, including (but not limited to) spina bifida, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, post-polio, Guillain-Barré-Strohl Syndrome, ALS, all other neuropathies, and all other conditions causing disability.
For this camp, we require individuals to already own an adaptive mountain bike with e-assist. You will need to be able to provide your own transportation for yourself and your handcycle to East Burke, VT with up to $500 in travel vouchers included (flight, gas, train, rental car).
When: Tuesday, September 27-30, 2022
What and Where: Join the KBF for three days of biking in the beautiful Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. The camp features 2 days of trail riding at Kingdom Trails and 1 day of downhill riding at Burke Mountain Bike Park. All abilities welcome!
What’s Included: 3 night stay at Burke Mountain Resort, with 3 days of breakfast, 2 lunches and 1 dinner. All trail passes and lift tickets will also be included. Please let us know if there is any other equipment you might need outside of your offroad handcycle.
In addition to the Kelly Brush Foundation team, you will also be led and supported by an amazing group of people involved in the adaptive mountain bike community, including staff from Vermont Adaptive and other New England based programs
