Hey! I want to get into downhill biking and races but the problem is, where I live here in Ottawa, On Canada theres no downhill courses at all and i'm only 16 and don't drive yet and my parents don't drive either, so what do I do? Is there another way of getting to downhill areas??

Thanks!

Jack

Hey! LOL well i'm not poor at all, my parent make enuff money just they never got a car lol they take the bus or walk or w/e. Its way cheaper and gives you allot more excersice. Also I have a pretty good job and make enuff money so i'm able to buy 4000$+ bikes pretty easy. About the taking the bus thing, I could buy a bus ticket but how would I take my bike with me on the bus? I don't think theres any room for a 40 pound downhill bike in the luggage comparment and I don;'t think they would let me take it on the bus lol. Any suggestions on this? Also does anyone live in Ottawa who races??

Thanks!

i asume you know how to take your cranks wheels and forks and bars off. so go to a lbs and get a bike box stuff your bike in there. and put ur bike under the bus.
