Dirt bike riding is for "climate criminals" - yes I was actually told that once

It sure is a family sport. My son and I are going to ride this weekend at a family friendly SJMC fun day on Saturday, then ride the Stumpyland Trials on Sunday. Then we are going to go on a weeklong road trip to Idaho where we will explore some new trails. Can't wait!

 

Him and I did some rally nav riding at the Yellowstone Rally in Wyoming over Memorial Day weekend too. It was a blast!

My son is the fourth gen dirtbike rider in my family,I love sharing the freedom of riding and the love of the sport with my family,and all the nice people we meet along the way that have the same compassion for the sport or as I tell my son love for the lifestyle. My life has been blessed in many ways but it sure feels good to know what my dad and grandfather felt like the first time they took their kids riding.20170329_180700.jpgIMG951516.jpgScreenshot_2017-05-30-18-16-21.png20170624_113856.jpeg20170624_110025.jpeg20170624_110025.jpeg

Dirt bike riding is the best family sport I have ever seen.  Parents have close interaction with their kids for hours at a time. I virtually raised my kids on dirt bikes and they never got into trouble with automobiles after they became old enough to drive.  The good memories I have of those rides with them are the driving force behind he efforts I have put in to build the kids training trails in the Shelton Dirt Rider area so other parents can have a safe place to interact with their kids.  It sure is better than what smart phones are doing to families these days.

Dirtbiking is an awesome family sport. My dad rides his ol xr200, my older brother rides a yz250, I'm on a crf450, got my girl into it now on an xr100, buying my 2 1/2 year old son an Oset 12.5 Saturday so he can get into it since he is too small to ride the pw50 for the other side of the family's kids, but he sure still trys. My one year old daughter is always trying to climb on the PW,. Both of my kids have mastered dirtbike sounds.

One of those rare sports that takes all ages and types of people.

There is the Stumpy Trial this weekend on Sunday. Bring your kids out to ride the Little Wheels Class. They can ride any kids dirt bike or even striders. It is a great environment to get kids confidence and they have lots of fun. Trophies help keep them going too.

That looks pretty sweet. Little guy definitely won't be ready for that yet though. Going to be rolling training wheels for a little while.

Started him on one of the little strider/balance bikes to get him more stable. Figured this is the next step closer to a 50cc dirtbike and a good place to build skills. I'm sure my daughter will be wanting to ride it before he has moved up to a 50.
