The rolling terrain and grand views of McLaren Park hosted another spectacular Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day event. This year (2011) SFUR worked with local youth groups such as Real Options for City Kids, and the Boys & Girls Club (Excelsior) to motivate over 65 youth participants to this years event. Thanks to a generous donation from the local bike rental angels at Blazing Saddles, there was a properly fitted mountain bike for every participant to use all day.
The Presidio Y-Bike program and SFRPD assisted with the bike skills and rider management responsibilities again this year. The Y-Bike program has unique resources and programs that continue to be a key component to youth cycling opportunities in San Francisco.
Sheila Moon Athletic Apparel was on-site teaching the next generation about cycling fashion. The Moon booth made sure everyone got a chance for arm warmers or skull caps.
Specialized is always a welcome TKMBD sponsor. There presence and resources helps make the event special…. with everything from the FREE Youth Bike Raffle, to all the other schwag they bring like shirts, helmets, water bottles, and bike karma.
Lets do it again next year!
