Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day

Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day

This Saturday is Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day. And, while the big events are paused for COVID-19, you can still get out with your family or neighbors. Pack the best snacks, stop for ice cream, make it a scavenger hunt…just make sure you ride with the next generation. Start ‘em young today to build the trail stewards of tomorrow!

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.

In the Seattle area, Raging River is probably the best or Rattlesnake Lake. While the day will look different this year, IMBA and Bike Hugger families and close neighbors to take their kids to the trails. Then share pictures and stories from your day with the hashtag #TKMBD.
