Take A Kid Mountain Biking!
Take A Kid Mountain Biking!

It's that time of year again where we celebrate IMBA's Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day. Last year we had a tremendous turnout, so we are hoping to have another successful event again this year. Once again the event is being put on by REI, Trips For Kids, the Dirt Divas, and the Tarheel Trailblazers. There will be food and drinks, homemade ice cream, and plenty of mountain biking with the little ones. Here are the details:

IMBA's International Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day

IMBA will celebrate its sixth annual International Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day on Saturday, October 2, 2010. This is a great opportunity for you to "share your love of cycling with someone smaller than you." Talk to your neighbors, co- workers, relatives and friends and bring their kids on a ride.

Trips for Kids Charlotte, the Trailblazers, the Dirt Divas and REI are planning a great local event, including clinics and a lunch cookout.

When: Saturday Oct. 2nd, 8:30 Registration, 9:00 Ride, Noon Cookout

Where: Colonel Francis Beatty Park (meet in tennis court parking lot), 4330 Weddington Rd, Matthews, NC 28105

All riders must wear helmets, sign a waiver at registration and all kids under sixteen must be accompanied by an adult.

Now, here's the part where I ask for your help. As you know, we have a regular Tarheel Trailblazers Kids Ride on our local trails, but this ride is much, much more. We need volunteers for the following:

Ride leaders, sweepers, etc.

Help with possibly organizing a simple skills clinic

We could also use an extra grill and some people to help with the food.

If you plan on attending, please let me know (post up here, PM, etc.)so we can get an accurate headcount for food, etc.

I look forward to seeing a big turnout from the club on this one!

See you there!
