A few weekends ago, we borrowed some gear and headed out to the local BMX track to make one of Todd’s dreams come true: a night of riding BMX style as a family. Even though the girls had been resistant to the plan for months, once they got out there (one tumble aside) we couldn’t get them off the track. Despite being schooled by a freakishly skilled three year old, I also had way more fun than I thought I would taking my practice laps around the course.
Rumor has it that Santa might be bringing BMX bikes for Christmas. When your kids say, “we need to come to the BMX track more often” after a night of family fun, what else is a bike-loving dad to do?
