Denver Mountain Bikers (DMB) Message Board › Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day
Reposted from MTBR. I have led a ride for this in the past, and it was really fun. You don't need to be a great rider, just be cool with the kids and keep them from killing themselves.
Colorado Mountain Bike Association (COMBA) and Trips for Kids invites all kids aged 6-14 to Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day on Saturday, October 6th at Bear Creek Lake Park! The event starts at 9am sharp and includes a guided bike ride for all kids based on their age and skill level, free kid bike tunes, workshops where the kids will learn basic bike skills, bike maintenance, ecology of area and rules of the trail, breakfast and lunch. The event wraps up at 1pm. Thanks to generous support from sponsors, everything at the event will be free of charge and all the kid needs to bring to the event is a bike with fat knobby tires in working condition, a helmet, sunscreen, water and a participating adult. Parents/participating adults are highly encouraged to either join the kids for the ride.
Space is limited and registration will open on the COMBA’s website Colorado Mountain Bike Association | Buildon September 1, 2012. Last year registration filled up in a few days, so plan to register early to ensure a slot.
We’re also looking for volunteer ride leaders for the event. Please email TKMBD@comba.org if you are interested in volunteering or for more info.
