Thread: Mountain biking with your kids

    Mountain biking with your kids

    I know a few of us take our boys and girls mountain biking. Here's a thread to share your photos, videos, and even stories.

    My 11 year old is finally getting big enough to ride my old Klein Mantra. We've been riding the Bonneville Shoreline Trail in Ogden and occasionally along the river bottoms in Riverdale. Once in a while we bring the dog too.

    Here are some clips from last week. He took a spill but it wasn't bad at all. A lesson on switchbacks. Oh and he's climbing much better than I am too, which isn't saying much. I'm trying to ride with him every week, we'll see if I can keep that commitment.

    I'm so jealous of you with kids who like to ride with you. I could never get my kids to go with me when they were younger. Now they are all grown and gone. My daughter (and athlete of the family) has told me she wants to get into mt. biking once she's done with med school and rotations next fall. I'm hopeful!
    Are we there yet?

    Took the 6 year old to Moab a few weeks back. Day 1 was some practice laps on Rusty Spur and day 2 he did the EZ/Lazy loop.

    I took my boy and pup to the Riverdale trail along the river bottoms there. This is a great trail and terrain for kids. Just a word of advice, there are vagabonds that occasionally camp out down there since it's very close to where the trains stop.

    This was from tonight

    I'm just happy to see the word 'vagabond' used in a sentence.

    Love riding with my oldest son. Need to get my younger boy out there.
