Renowned action sports camp Windells is partnering with the team at Sensus R.A.D. Trails to introduce Milepost ThirtyFive (M35) mountain bike camps. With the rise in popularity of mountain biking and the continuous expansion of trails in Northwest Oregon, it only made sense to go all-in on multiple tiers of mountain bike operations, utilizing Sensus R.A.D. Trail’s experience in the bike world and commitment to growing progressive facilities within the sport.
M35 is hoping to reintroduce biking into its curriculum at Windells. Picking up where the Northwest School of Freeride left off, this new partnership will be a fresh start at creating a legendary mountain bike camp.
M35 will also host adult performance camps for those who have outgrown the summer camp experience. Looking to learn some pointers before your first enduro race? Gain some extra speed in the corners? Hit that jump you’ve been eyeing on the trails? These camps will bring your confidence and your riding to the next level, regardless of age. M35 Performance will fit into a more work-oriented schedule and cater to weekend warriors.
Sensus R.A.D. Trails will be building out on-site mountain bike infrastructure to compliment existing skateparks, trampolines, airbags and training facilities. Windells will also be working with R.A.D. to structure daily bike operations and picking elite-level coaches. In addition to the incredible trail networks in the area, R.A.D. will be building a dual slalom track, jump trails, plus a mulch jump and airbag designed by professional slopestyle athletes. Given the unique plot of land, there will be constant expansion and the opportunities to teach proper trail maintenance and digging to the mountain bike campers.

You may not be able to have a private air bag session at Zink's property, but a version of this will exist at camp. Air bags are not only great for the up and coming freerider but can allow a rider to get used to some serious hang time.

Windells offers the ultimate experience to anyone looking to improve their skills in the action sports world. With the hundreds of kids coming through camps every year for other sports, the goal will be to introduce these athletes to the mountain bike world. Using the world-class facilities and well-versed logistics of such a staple camp program, Windells strives to grow M35 into a big player in the mountain bike world.
As of now, we are on for overnight camps at the end of July and beginning of August. In the meantime, we will be hosting day camps lasting three days for those close to the Windells campus. Information will be on our website and @milepost35
on Instagram. WyEast Academy will also be looking into a mountain bike focused boarding school in the near future with the intent to grow the next generation of world-class bike athletes with a year-round academic program. Youth weeks will be July 25- August 1 ( Cam Zink Signature Session) and August 5-11 (Carson Storch Signature Session). The 21+ adult session will be offered the week of July 25- August 1.
