Because You Want Them to Love This Sport. Introduce your kids to mountain biking or encourage them to improve their skills. Sign a waiver, put a helmet on them, and watch them try their skills and tackle obstacles in a challenging and supportive environment. They will gain confidence and have fun. You will love that they want to ride.
Kids bring their own rides, or try out a demo bike. The Kids’ Rodeo will be run by Trips for Kids Santa Cruz, a volunteer non-profit which provides positive outdoor experiences for at-risk kids through mountain biking. A special thank you to Monterey Off Road Cycling Association (MORCA) for the use of their bike skills obstacle course.
