At The Golden Maple, our passion is to see people enjoying the outdoors, creating new friendships, and growing into kind and compassionate people. We can’t wait to have you join us on our journey.
The Golden Maple, just 6 miles outside of River Falls in the beautiful hills of Beldenville, WI.
Our Goal: One of our core values at The Golden Maple is to teach kids how to be courageous so they can gain confidence. As they learn new mountain biking skills, they will gain confidence in their ability to bike well. As we go through team building exercise, they will see how they can overcome obstacles by seeking help from others. As they create new connections and friendships, they will gain confidence in themselves. Kids will learn more than just mountain biking, and we love that!
Meet the Coaches: Johnathan has spent most of his life on a bike and can be found riding his favorite trails in both the summer and winter. He enjoys participating in races occasionally and particularly loves a good night ride on a warm night. His experience as a certified level 1 IMBA Bike instructor and a past ski instructor has given him the tools to motivate kids and adults to get excited about exploring the great outdoors. He can’t wait to share his enthusiasm and encourage his next rider!
Karissa has coached basketball for several years and knows what it takes to encourage and motivate kids and adults to work together as a team and build important interpersonal skills that are important in everyday life!
Our 11 year old son Christian (pictured above) said he needs to be included as a coach (in training) too, now that he’s gone through the camp many times. Christian has been biking since he was little. His dad pushed him on his Strider bike as a little boy and now he loves to go fast on his own, gaping as many jumps as he can and scaring his parents half to death. He’s always looking for new friends to come bike with him, so sign up for a camp today!
