I love jumping my bike with friends and I love following or leading one or more people down a trail or a jump line. There is this incredible since of connectedness that I feel when jumping my bike in close proximity to another rider I know and trust. It’s an amazing. But every now and then, things take a turn and I get an up close and personal look at how close I can get to the edge without actually falling off.

Getting RRAD at Roosevelt

You just gotta get rad sometimes and this local program to get kids on bikes and caring for the trails is one hell of a good start. This is video from one of their recent bike rodeos for kids. Good fun for a lot of kids. Can you imagine this as your school day?! For more information on the RRAD (Ride, Run And Dig) Program see their Facebook page here. Thanks to Chris Mellick for heading for inviting us out!
