Trips For Kids’ second annual Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day festival took place on Saturday, October 6th at Miwok Meadows in China Camp State Park. It was a smash hit with record turn out, an abundance of smiles, and a boost of self-esteem for all those who participated. Trips for Kids Marin Ride Leaders and volunteers educated youth on bike safety and guided them through skill courses and on trail rides through the park. For some kids, it was their first-time mountain biking. All equipment was provided free of charge allowing every child an opportunity to try out a new hobby and gain confidence on a bike. The festival was part of a larger national movement created by IMBA with youth biking events across the country including fellow Trips for Kids chapters.
We can’t wait for another opportunity to host a free community event such as this. Thank you to everyone who attended, volunteered, or worked the festival making it truly special! Here are some photos from the big day.
