It’s not just for kids!

Parents, mountain biking is one of the few activities you can physically do with your children. Rather than just driving them to the rink and watching you can actually participate with your children and experience the excitement of mountain biking right along with them. You will connect with your children on a very real and meaningful level while rediscovering the child within yourself.
