The vast majority of trail riders (on average) are 50+ years old. I have ridden with groups in two different states, and nearly every rider I have seen on average is >50 years old. Make no mistake, I am certainly not complaining; quite the contrary in fact. I prefer riding with veteran riders. They are smarter, more experienced, more careful, more knowledgeable, and more responsible. But I am simply curious as to where the younger riders are at? Certainly at the MX tracks none of the riders are over 30 (on average), so that’s one theory, but I refuse to believe that all riders under 30 ride at MX tracks. Another theory is that since dirt bike riding is such an expensive sport, the younger population (generally speaking) simply can’t afford it. Between raising kids, trying to buy a house, and focusing on a career, there just isn’t much money (nor time) available. As I read through what I’ve written, I’m now convinced that I have answered my own question lol. Any additional thoughts though? Full disclosure, I am 27 years old.
