    Young punks

    Some of the hoodlums in my neighborhood have begun documenting their escapades. Just some goofy kids having fun but somehow bikes are always the focus of their clips.

    Future mountain bikers for sure!

    Thanks everyone for the nice replies. I was hesitant to post it because I thought maybe it was only funny to me because he's my kid, but I'm happy y'all enjoyed it too.

    Sweetness! This is how a bike addiction begins! Before they know it they will be looking for sponsors, and become firm believers in the n+1 rule.

    Just one thing, get some helmets on them young punks!

    What, you think I light cigars with !00 bills? The last time I bought him shoes they were 2 sizes too big and he outgrew them before we got home!

    Seriously, I cringe every time I see him ride barefoot- especially on spiky rat trap pedals.

    Exactly the reason riding puts a smile on my face to this day. Brings back memories like that, except we were in a more suburban area. Same basic attitude. Just made sure we were home before the street lights came on.

    Oh man I love this!!!! I remember doing this sort of stuff growing up in small town kansas town. We would ride in local creeks that were lined in clay and have a blast doing it. Sadly I lost touch with all those friends but I've out to make new ones. Two thumbs up for this post!!!!

    Grew up in a rural MA town on the NH border and this reminded me of those days. Love to see kids exploring and having fun.

    Nice to see kids still doing similar things as I/we were doing back in the day. I was starting to wonder if kids used bikes for anything other than a mode of transportation anymore.

    Nah, how else is he going to be able to wrap his toes around the pedals so he can pull on the upstroke?


    This reminds me so much of the things my friends and I used to do on the undeveloped acreage at the back of our farm, thanks for posting it!
    I'm enjoying my childhood way too much to ever give it up.

    Awesome vid. My friends down the street had a wooded area that we used to dig big mud holes and build jumps to jump the pit. Also reminds me of riding construction sites to get some dirt. Not many trails in the suburbs back in the 70s.

    Great video!

    When I see these "when did you start mountain biking" threads the answer for me is I've only just taken it up recently but I was riding bikes just like those kids for years as a child. Wheelies, jumps, skids, riding through drains, puddles, creeks etc Great stuff!

    Thanks for posting.

    What a cool video, like everyone else is saying, this brings back a flood of memories! I even remembered a few old friends names while watching this that I haven't thought about in over 30 years. I was a kid in the 70's and we had hair like that too - LOL.

    Brought a huge smile to my face - thanks for posting!
