TAKE A KID MOUNTAIN BIKING DAY HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED: TKMBD is an annual celebration held in October. The event, developed and coordinated by IMBA, strives to encourage communities around the world to join together and ride mountain bikes with youth.
Youth day at Vulture’s Knob MTB Park | OCTOBER 13 | 2:00 (Halloween Costumes Welcome)
2:00-2:45 on bike instruction zones
3:00-3:30 youth races
4:00 – watch the start of the adult race
4:15- youth awards, Clif Bars, prizes
Lots of goodies like Specialized t-shirts, Clif Bars and waterbottles for youth participants!
This event focuses on youth riders, and we’ll work on a few skills and then head out on youth race course to put the skills to use. Then we’ll have a fun youth race with awards to follow. We work on safety, trail awareness, the power stroke, balance, track stands, turns, braking, overcoming and riding obstacles and more.
Games – bike limbo contest | last person riding | slowest race competition | skills course
YOUTH RACES | time 3:00 | Costumes preferred (whats the fun if you don’t ride in disguise)
