Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day

3 10 2010

Today, Team Alchemist, led and organized by Ken, took a flock of future world champions on a ride through the trails of West Magnolia by Nederland.  The IMBA sponsored event was hosted by Alchemist, and a great time was had by all. The weather couldn’t have been better.  Starting at the East parking lot, we bombed through Root Canal and Hobbit 2 and 3.  Ages ranged from 6 to 9, some of whom were riding singletrack for the first time. Even though the trails were tough and technical, and sometimes scary, there was a remarkable paucity of whining and complaining.  These kids were tough and resilient, and they crushed it.  Watermelon and Ryn’s homemade cookies were devoured after the 2 hour no-holds-barred ride.  Thanks to Ken for organizing it, thanks also to Jeff C., Amy, Christian, Ryn, Jenn and Tim  for safely guiding us through the trails.  Thanks to IMBA for the excellent idea.  And of course, thanks to the kids, who made it such a blast.  Check out the video below for the action.
