The Bicycle Trails Council of the East Bay is hosting it’s 5th Annual IMBA Kids Ride at Pt. Pinole Regional Park on October 1, 2011 from 10 AM to 2PM. The ride is open to all kids with bikes and helmets accompanied by their parents. Pt. Pinole offers 14 miles of well maintained fireroad and wide trails in a gently rolling SF Bayside setting.

Riders will be sorted into ability groups with skilled adult support and support from members of the NorCal High School Racing League. In the past we have supported Trail-a-bikes, Burleys, small bikes and such, easily.

A nice after-ride lunch, with light options, will be provided at no cost. Water and facilities are ample. There is also a great Kiddy Park with swings, slides, and a jungle-gym for riders who just need to play! Or they can go explore the beach!

So grab a kid and join us!

PM me for more information.

I have received numerous PMs and emails from around the Bay for this ride. In addition to the support from our hardworking and successful Youth Mountain Bike Adventures crew and the usual Directors of the Board who always pitch-in, we have Boy Scouts to help set-up the food and 5 NorCal High School Racers to support rides.

Pt. Pinole is a natural for kids. I used to bring Miguel and his friends there when he was little. He'll be at the ride, too. This is about sharing, volunteering; passing it forward.

55 showed up to ride this little park. Food and fun was did. El Cerrito Boys Scouts and NorCal High Racers from Miramonte, Albany, and El Cerrito came out to give their time to the community. Old friends from years back renewed aquaintances and folks joined us who heard about us at Interbike. In addition to our general mtb community 12 kids from urban settings in San Pablo and Parchester Village in Richmond, through our Youth Mountain Bike Adventures program, got a chance to come out and experience this first hand.

A:thumbsup:ll in all, not bad.
