With the success of the first Boys & Girls Club of Austin – East Club and Austin Ridge Riders Mountain Bike Club (ARR) field trip to Walnut Creek Metropolitan Park, we decided once was not enough.
We loaded the bikes in the bus and set out for a day of fun and adventure. The word had spread and some new riders came along for the trip.
This time we had more girls, both kids and instructors. The girls were excited to see the women instructors as they provided special role models and encouragement.
The kids were pumped to hit the trails and even more to hit up the BMX pump track. Denzel led the charge to the jumps, working on the skills he learned last time out. The other kids took the cue and followed right behind, quickly finding their own groove.
The kids and instructors have made bonds that they are excited to build on during future rides.
