KidTrips August 27, 2011 Boys & Girls Club of the Austin Area
Thanks to the efforts of Brian Beaulieu, Director of Operations with the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area, fourteen boys and girls hit the trails at the Slaughter Trail for a KidTrips adventure they will never forget. Before the ride, the six basic International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) Rules of the Trail were discussed and emphasis is placed on the significance of one's own actions on and off the trail. An able volunteer demonstrated shifting, braking, and other bike handling skills. Each child was fit for and taught to properly wear a helmet and then rolled out in small groups led by adult volunteers.
Judging from the photos, a great time was had by all. Thanks to the adult volunteers who make these events possible!
