On Saturday October 5, in conjunction with the IMBA Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day (http://www.imba.com/kids), CORBA Kid’s Club will be having a fun ride at Malibu Creek State Park (http://www.venturacountytrails.org/TrailMaps/MalibuCreek/AreaTrails.htm) at 9:00 am. This will be a ride followed by a barbecue. All ages are welcome! If the kids are too young to ride, feel free to bring a bike trailer or trail-a-bike and tow them along. These can be your own kids, nieces, nephews, friends kids, neighbor kids… Kids must have their own bikes and helmets.
There will be a few different ride options for different age groups. Feel free to participate even if you don’t have any kids to bring.
Childhood obesity in the United States has reached an all-time high. Experts say that the current generation of U.S. children could actually have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. IMBA and CORBA believe mountain biking can help reverse this trend. We need your help to get kids back on bikes.

Only adults need to register; please indicate the number of kids you will be bringing along with +1, +2, etc when you RSVP.
