WHAT TO EXPECT
Participants will need to bring their own bikes and helmets as well as food and water for the ride. Parents are encouraged to ride with their children. Activities include skills activities, basic bike safety, and trail rides for all ages and all skill levels. Ride will be broken into the following categories according to skill level:
- Group 1: This will be for our youngest riders who want to ride the course close to the group area.
- Group 2: Ride around Irvine Regional Park consisting of concrete path to playground. Along with the skills area, this group can ride along the path to the playground.
- Group 3: Loop over towards Santiago Regional Park on dirt roads and single track trails. Kids will develop dirt riding skills and develop additional skills by riding over teeter totters and other skill building objects.
- Group 4: Ride out of Irvine Regional Park and ride the trails within Santiago Regional Park. Traditionally the “Big Kids” ride, this group will head out to sample excellent single track. This group will also have the opportunity to extend dirt riding skills and develop additional skills by riding over teeter totters and other skill building objects.
All donations made at the event will go to SHARE to be used to maintain local trails, promote responsible and safe use of mountain bikes, and work to assure and improve access to great local trails.
