Cost: $85 per child

Campers Receive: 
Goodie Bag
Specialized Socks
Exclusive Camper T-shirt
5 Hours of bike play time!


Kids ages 6 – 12 can join the fun…

The Specialized Cactus Cup is about family, tradition and competition and our collective goal is to grow the mountain bike community.

As parents ourselves we know that usually only one parent can race at a time while the other stays behind.  We are here to solve that problem! Drop the kids and grab a ride!  Race in an XC event, ride on your own or just get a nap in! *Parents must remain on park property and will provide cell number to guides as well as sign waiver upon drop off.

Drop off is at the Bike Masters / Specialized tent at the Kids Zone which is all at the Pump Track. Guides will break kids into groups by age and ability for skill building and trail riding.

Kids need to have riding ability. No training wheels as it’s too difficult with our desert conditions. Campers will stay within the venue and park area utilizing the pump track and nearby trails. Bring your own bike and helmet. 

Preliminary Details (Final details Jan. 15th, 2024):

  • Camp drop-off begins at 8:30am at the KIDS ZONE. This is a tent located near the pump track and Bike Masters in the main venue
