Take a Kid Mountain Biking was a Success

IMBA TKMBD PosterHoriz FINAL (1)-page-001The event was a big hit and had around 40 kids and their parents show up!  Scott Ramsey did safety checks on all the bikes prior to them entering the riding area.  We had a strider course (built by Joe Hoskins) and a wooden roller (built by Mark Brookman).  Both were very popular!  Skills stations for wheel lifts, turning, and “skinnies”  were set up for the kids to rotate between.  Several of our BRC Jr team members assisted by demonstrating good technique.  We held “slow” races to practice control and had multiple groups head out on different rides on the trails according to skill level.  We even had some new-to-riding parents come along!  The event ended with the Paranormal kids race.  It was lots of fun and couldn’t have been done without the help of so many volunteers- Ellen and Scott Ramsey, Matt Holbrook, Colleen Compton, Amanda Brookman, Annette Dusenbury, Chris Little, Morgan Cruthirds, Gordon Wadsworth, BRC Jr team members and probably others that I’m forgetting. It was great to see so many people involved!
