A Rad Little Rodeo for the Victory Foundation @ NC State University Centennial Campus

Honored to bring back another Rad Little Rodeo in the fight against cancer. Alongside the rad folk with the Victory Ride, we’ll be providing a most epic mini-course for the little one’s. Full of ramps, rollers, obstacles and more. Bringing a sense of accomplishment & fun for their own bicycle adventures.
While indeed a most unique & challenging times we’ve all experienced this past year, our course will be set out in a way to protect yourself, family & the Bikin’ Dads crew. Unfortuantly we will not be providing demo bikes or helmets in efforts to keep direct contact to a minimum. So remember to bring your balance bikes, helmets and a smile!
