Title: Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day 10/4
Post by: Kevin M on August 27, 2014, 10:01:35 AM
Save the date, everyone! This year Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day is on Saturday, October 4th.

Since the beginner loop at Wapehani is broken by I-69, I have secured permission to hold the event at the much more family-friendly RCA Community Park. (I've been rerouting the old hiking trails there, and while the new trails aren't bike-optimized, they should be perfect for an introductory event like this.)

Thanks to Revolution Bike & Bean (http://www.revolutionbikeandbean.com/) for their past and continuing support of this event! If you are interested in volunteering to help out, please get in touch.

Yes! If you're available for even an hour between 10 AM - 2 PM on Saturday 10/4, we could definitely use your help.

If anyone wants to help prep the trails and has time next week, please get in touch.

And for those who can't volunteer, please spread the word to your friends with kids! Remember, the event is at RCA Community Park this year, not Wapehani.

*bump*

Tomorrow may be a little chilly, but this rain should pass through today and I expect the new new kid-friendly trails at RCA Community Park to be in good shape for the event tomorrow!

Thanks for bringing the kids! I'm sure the chilly wind kept some folks home, but they don't know how much fun they missed!
