This local event is part of a nationwide celebration known as Take-A-Kid-Mountain-Biking Day, supported by IMBA. The event purpose is to provide a means for kids and their families to enjoy local trails together. The Monterey County Parks Department will allow bikes on certain Toro Park trails that are usually closed so beginners can enjoy a safe ride. Local bike shops have donated products along with contributions from IMBA and Cliffbar.
Participants will need to bring their own bikes and helmets (MORCA has a few extra kids helmets to loan and some demo bikes will be available on a first come first served basis). Bike gloves are recommended, but not required. Parents are encouraged to ride with their children.
This is a great opportunity to pass your passion for pedaling on to kids.
