Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day @ Colonel Francis Beatty Park
Oct 5 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

So, yea looking at the calendar are we double booked? No, we’re just expanding helping our pals with Charlotte’s Trips For Kids with this most rad annual day on a mountain bike. There will be something for everyone, so bring the bike, rock the helmet and bring a kid or more! What is this day???

IMBA Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day (TKMBD) is an annual event that seeks to introduce the joy of mountain biking to the next generation. Created in 2004 and recognized by the U.S. Congress, TKMBD is officially celebrated every year on the first Saturday in October. More than 100,000 youth have discovered and celebrated the joy of pedaling two wheels on dirt at TKMBD events, and many have gone on to become passionate riders, volunteer trail advocates and even high school mountain bike racers.

**So, yea obviously not our event, however we’re just stoked to be a part of it all! While our specific details are still being critiqued, we do know that the “Rad Little Rodeo” for kids is coming back!  What is Outdoor Market you ask, 

Outdoor Market offers a unique setting for guests to get hands-on experience with gear from top brands in the outdoor industry. Over three days, this festival offers guests the opportunity to demo bikes, trail running shoes, kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, climbing gear and more throughout the 1,300 acre facility at the U.S. National Whitewater Center. During the festival, guests can also participate in group rides, runs and paddles, as well as yoga practices and educational, participatory, and tech clinics. Opportunities to unwind from the festival’s active nature include craft beer, food, and films.

Here’s a peak from our little view last year, except we were not operating the rodeo this time.

Learn To Ride-Charlotte @ Arbor Glen Rec Center
Oct 19 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

**Event Disclaimer: not our event, yet we fully support this awesome opportunity in how to, “Learn To Ride” . Just tell ’em the Bikin’ Dads Adventures crew sent ya!

 

It’s never too early (or too late!) learn to ride a two-wheeler! Kids of all ages and grown-ups, too, can Learn to Ride a bike using the tried-and-true “balance bike” method. It’s easy, it’s fun, and it’s a skill that will last a lifetime! Join the fun, and this FREE opportunity to Learn to Ride!

Learn to Ride is a not-for-profit, 100% volunteer series of events to grow Charlotte’s cycling community one new cyclist at a time. Learn to Ride is made possible in partnership with Bicycle Sport and Trips for Kids Charlotte, with support from Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation, Mecklenburg County Public Health, and well-run media + marketing.

The event is geared to kids (of all ages!) and parents of kids, who want to learn to ride a bicycle without training wheels. Parents should bring their kids, their kids’ bikes and helmets. Don’t have a bike or helmet? Don’t worry – we have loaners! We’ll walk the soon-to-be-riders through the process, which is to sign in, check bike and helmet fit, remove training wheels and pedals, and lower the seat so the rider can stand comfortably over the bike. When the time’s right, we’ll reinstall the pedals – and turn this “balancing act” into practice with the pedals in motion!

No advance sign ups are necessary – just show up ready to have fun!
