    A ride with my son

    I am fairly certain this is my first "Passion" post. After a one year recovery from injury, I made it back. Hard work, but days like this make it so worth it. How often do three generations get to ride together. My dad and I took out my son to "ride on dirt," which has become his passion. Thanks to all of you who posted this last year, your posts gave me daily motivation. All the best.

    Heck Yeah! The little man took every chance he could to "jump" the little bumps on the side! Even crushed the climbs! He is going to shred in the future!

    Thanks for the great post... and glad to see you are back on the bike again.

    Even though my son is just 16 months, I have already bought his Strider and I already have some trails mapped out so we can ride.

    Me, my 8 y/o son, and my 69 y/o dad hit the local pump track (which my dad helped build) for a few hours Saturday.

    Good times!

    Awesome video! I loved watching him fly down the descents with ease and negotiate the tech sections. He hung right through!

    My son is 15 and going to get him into riding this year. He's 6 foot and pretty fearless, always doing standing flips and crazy little stunts. I know he could be a monster on the trails as he is really fit. I'll get him started and watch him disappear down the trail as I know I won't be able to keep up with him lol.
