Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day set for Oct. 6

Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance will host Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 6 at King County’s Duthie Hill Park in Issaquah.

Since beginning in 2011, Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day has grown from less than 100 attendants to more than 600 participants at the 2017 event. The day’s activities include everything from mini-clinics for children on Strider bikes to group trail rides for teenagers hosted by Evergreen-certified instructors. The event also includes instruction from professional mountain biker, Kat Sweet, family rides, a free barbecue lunch from Gregg’s Cycles, snacks from Clif Bar and raffle prizes and giveaways.

With a total membership that broke 5,400 in early September, Evergreen’s Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day serves as the organization’s way of introducing the sport of mountain biking to younger generations and inviting them to try out one of the fastest growing sports in the state.

The event is free and open to all ages and abilities. Parents are welcome to ride with their kids too. Local sponsors of the 2018 Duthie Hill TKMBD include Gregg’s Cycles, Sweet Lines and Clif Bar.
