Guilt. It's a bit*h....but it got me off my *ss.
My kids love to ride their bikes, but daddy is too busy working. You know, cuz
I got my priorities all straight and stuff.
Anyway, I figured I could make a path around the yard for them to hold them over
when they're really jones ing for a ride. What the heck, we weren't really using the
yard for anything anyway.
Well, this idea evolved from a path to "let's add a couple humps" to "let's build a
pump track" .
So now I'm stoked to have the track so we can all ride it together anytime we want.
Of course, now I gotta build it. So far I have moved 20 tons of dirt into the back yard
one barrow at a time. I 'sorta' know what I'm doing, but at this rate it will be 100 degrees
before I finish it. I hope to make it hard and smooth and add some lights for night
riding. It's not a huge area, but big enough I think.
Anybody interested in pump tracks want to help out with this project? Obviously, you
would get ongoing track privledges. I thought it would be more fun to share with a group
anyway. I am in my 40s and have two small children so we are definitely trying to
foster a family atmosphere. We live in Tempe.
Anyone interested, shoot me a PM.
