The first Saturday of October every year is the official Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day (TKMBD), as decreed by the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA). This event is celebrated around the world including: Italy, Australia, South Africa, Canada, Malaysia, and Mexico. TKMBD celebrates the joy of riding in the dirt.
In Frisco, seven BWR members came out to help check fit on the kids’ bikes and helmets, change flats, lead/sweep rides and cheer the kids on. Frisco drew 15 smiling, happy kids to their event and many laps around the trail were taken by all.
BWR is not just about racing, we also give back to the community through events like this. In addition, team members have participated in Cub Scout bike safety rodeos, Children’s Red Balloon Ride, Ride 2 Recovery, Carry the Load, and other fundraising and community service events.
