I'm a pretty negative influence so far. Between encouraging my son to ride off small curbs, helping him roll over the dirt jumps at Highbridge, and flipping him on his side in the bike trailer a couple times while blasting through singletrack, I'm pretty sure I've doomed him to a life of moron-dom like me... I can see the effect it's had already, in that he purposely steers his bike over the rough paver stones rather than the smooth sidewalk.
I'm not looking for a kids ride. We like singletrack, just singletrack that's not narrow and choked off with trees/rocks. As long as there's about 30" of clearance, I can get the trailer through it.
I'm bringing the family (wife,5.5 and 7.5) and would really like to do an easy family ride to make it fun for the little ones. The 5.5 although is super determined is still on training wheels but has actually ridden some trails with me that are really smooth.It is very funny to watch she is like a muppet. However, I may bring one of those things illustrated on the other post where she can sit like a tandem and my son can ride his own. Maybe we can set a target time for a ride like this so others can join?
I think I'll make it up there at some point and maybe do an intermediate ride, most likely without the family, though. My oldest has soccer and my younger kids are still a bit too little for something like this.
