They open on PA days & I am usually the only Mom not sitting around just watching. Hopefully I don't embarrass my kids cause I am having so much fun playing with them!

    You certainly are a rad mom! Plus you get awesome points on top, since we need more women in the sport. Yu gotta know at least one other mom is watching have a blast and saying "hmmmmm, maybe -I- could do that too!" :)

    Oh, and don't worry about embarrassing your kids. When they get to the eye roll stage... They'd do that if you were shredding the gnar, or knittin some yarn. ;) But at least you can embarrass them on their own turf! My mom chopped wood when we were in NH and she would crush my 14 yo friends in arm wrestling. They did not take it well! Hehe

    I've been lusting after one of these things for a couple of years, I finally made it happen. Will be my urban trail/DJ ripper.

    I'm not part of the older crowd but this guy Griff that I coach from time to time is 64 and is pretty rad, has a blog Mountain Bike Geezer | Singletrack, gravity, bicycling issues & more and he has really been working on pump tracks and learning to pump flat ground, good article by Lee McCormack Lee Likes Bikes

    I would recommend finding a pump track or a bmx track and just going and playing there... it will really increase your skills and make you feel like a kid again!
