    All Mountain Kids

    The boys have been spending a lot of time working on their jumping skills after riding the freeride area at Big Creek.

    We started with just a small wooden jump



    it soon became too easy so we dug out the big guns







    To balance out all the freeriding we went to Tribble Mill on Saturday and did a 7 mile XC ride. I was so proud and had lots of fun. They just kept asking to ride more.



    Typical brothers - racing!



    Rock crawl





    Happy!

    Great pics!

    Got to ride Tsali with my oldest (he's 14) last weekend. He tore it up. My 7-year old is about to get his first "real" bike this coming Saturday for his 8th birthday. I'm stoked about getting him out on the trails Sunday afternoon.

    Keep the kid pics coming.

    yall are talking about getting your kids into mountain biking. I want to get my dad into mountain biking. suggestions on a bike? he's a clydesdale. methinks a longer travel hardtail, but I could be wrong. or a GT Force 1.0. looks to be a sound enough design that can take some abuse. opinions?

    3 years old (pic below)... your little one is ready!



    2nd week after his 3rd birthday, he said he wanted the training wheels off. Ten minutes after that he needed no assistance.

    Best thing I did was get him a Specialized HotRock. It actually weighs less than him but more importantly it is the best fit for small kids (and we tried a lot of bikes). With his comfort level raised because of the bike he was able to fulfill his enthusiasm.

    I'll give it a shot... To be honest, I haven't put him on a bike as he still can't get a hold of the pedal action.

    Agreed on the Hot Rock- kids figure out gears quicker than some adults. AND it is efficient enough for them to want to keep it up, my youngest loves his.
    Both of my boys were 4 before losing the training wheels. Of course, having an older brother that eats, sleeps, and breathes bikes probably helps out the drive with the youngest. I just make sure I'm not the one pushing him.

    My 19 year old started racing DH 8 years ago now he only wants to do computer gameing in college. My 16 year old doesn't even care about riding.
