Each Fall, leading up to the high school mountain bike season in Northern California teams host what are called "Fun Rides". These rides are chances to introduce people to mountain biking by, well--mountain biking! They are chance to garner interest in youth joining the team where everyone is invited to come try out the sport in a fun and safe atmosphere. Parents and guardians are invited to come and support their youth while pedaling alongside them with the guidance of team coaches.
We're very excited to take the first actual pedal strokes into making this team a reality by announcing a series of Fun Rides very soon. We'll be hosting these rides in four different locations throughout the greater Richmond area with the hopes of introducing as many new youth to mountain biking as possible. We're partnering with an amazing organization to provide all the gear (bikes, helmets, water bottles, etc.) so that all people have to bring are themselves and some comfortable clothes to ride in. Oh, and did we mention that these Fun Rides will be Free? Will you share these Fun Rides with a youth you know in the Richmond area? What about a parent or teacher or friend?
We scouted some of the Fun Ride locations this weekend. Check out the slideshow below to see for yourself some of the beauty Richmond has to offer. We'll be visiting all of these locations and more during the Fun Rides. Stay tuned to our website for the Fun Ride announcement with locations, dates and much more info this week. We'll be rolling soon!
Can you guess where all these photos were taken?
