The Bike Lane Junior Rider Program begins


It’s that time of year again.  Spring has sprung and it’s time to get your kid off the couch, dust off the bike, and go for a ride.   Join The Bike Lane for our weekly Junior Mountain Bike Rides on Monday evenings.  Over the last 4 years The Bike Lane has been offering weekly rides at Wakefield Park for any kid 8 and up (younger ones  are welcome but must be accompanied by a parent).  This year we are excited that we will also be adding Lake Fairfax, in Reston into the mix of trail rides.

The group varies in age and ability so we typicallly split up into 2-3 groups.  The kids have a blast riding the single track at Wakefield.  Not only do they get to enjoy the great outdoors but they learn a lot about themselves.  There are always new challenges on the trail that allow them to try new skills or work harder than they might be used to.  It is pretty cool to see the kids cheering each other on when they clear a creek crossing or go over a log that they thought was “Way too big!”.

    

The Bike Lane also has a Junior Race Team that meets on Wednesday evenings at Wakefield.    The kids learn new skills and work on racing technique. We also encourage all riders to become stewards of the trail and become MORE members.   There are about 10-15 regular riders and we expect to see more this year.  Learn more about our Monday Night rides and our Junior Mountain Bike Team.  And then come join us on the trails!
