    She turned 9 in April

    Needless to say, I'm quite proud of her We rode up Dogfood (first solo ascent) and down Schultz on Saturday.



    We've come a long way since '08 (when she was 3)...

    Nice work, dad.

    Is that a 26er? If so, do you know what size frame?

    Great video, can't wait to have kids, the wife has been bugging me about it lately so seeing videos like this is definitely gets me excited to have some rug rats to go shred with.

    Sweet man!
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
    arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.

    That's awesome Rocky! She is killing it and that has to make you both feel really good. My 20 y.o never got the bike bug, went for hockey instead but my little 5 y.o. is into two wheeled stuff pretty good so far. Can't wait until he is big enough for a 20 inch bike with some gears. The feeling of watching someone so close to you enjoy what you do cannot be described with words, pictures or video. You are a lucky man as you probably know and I am stoked for both of you!
