    Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day - Sat. Oct 1st

    Who: kids aged 6-14

    What: Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day

    Where: Bear Creek Lake Park

    When: Sat 10/01/2011, 9:00 - 1:00


    Colorado Mountain Bike Association (COMBA) and Trips for Kids would like to invite all kids aged 6-14 to Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day! The event includes a guided bike ride based on age and skill level, free kid bike tunes and a series of workshops where the kids will learn basic bike skills, bike maintenance, ecology of area and rules of the trail. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.

    Thanks to generous support from sponsors, everything at the event will be free of charge and all the kid needs to bring to the event is a bike with fat knobby tires in good working condition, a helmet, sunscreen, water and a participating adult. Parents/participating adults are highly encouraged to either join the kids for the ride.

    Registration opens today and space is limited so make sure you register soon!

    Email [email protected] for more info.

    We also rely heavily on our volunteers. If you are able to help this year, please email your name, contact information and preferred assignment (registration, grab bags/meals, course marshal, ride leader, bike mechanic) to [email protected].

    Big thanks to all the sponsors:

    The 40th kid just registered! We're officially half way before reaching our cap of 80 kids. Register now if you haven't already since we're looking to fill up in record time this year.

    Just saw this thread. You still need volunteers? I did send an email to the address listed. I really wanted to help out last year, but didn't work with my schedule.
    Gotta get up to get down.

    What a blast that was. Perfect weather, enthusiastic kids, fantastic work by volunteers, schwag, pizza, a well thought-out network of trails just challenging enough for the little legs, great workshops. Thank you COMBA and everyone who made this event the success that it was.
