Join Wildwood Conservation Area and the Totally Spoke’d bicycle shop in Stratford on Saturday, Oct. 4 for their “Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day” and demo of Norco brand bikes.
Wildwood and Totally Spoke’d will host young riders and families for a youth-oriented mountain biking event. The ride is part of an international celebration known as “Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day,” supported by the Canadian office of the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA Canada). In addition, there will be an assortment of 2015 Norco mountain bikes available for free demo (photo identification required).
More information is available at www.imbacanada.com/kids. All riders are welcome for this event, which starts at 10 a.m. at the visitor parking lot beside the bike wash station, near the conservation area’s main entrance.
Park admission is free for the day for participants. Helmets are mandatory.
Parents are encouraged to ride too. This is a “rain or shine” event so participants are encouraged to dress appropriately.
According to Wildwood Conservation Area, for those looking for a family-friendly adventure, the 4km RED trail is a great ride. Anyone looking to turn this into a more “epic” ride might consider doing the loop several times. “No matter what kind of ride you are looking for, a fun day on the trails is what you will find.”
IMBA’s International Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day celebrates the life of Jack Doub, an avid teenage mountain biker from North Carolina who had a true passion for the sport from an early age to the time when he passed away in 2002.
