Trying New Things: BMX as a Family

by This is Carrie on December 8, 2011

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?

You can read more about our first experience at the BMX track and the life lessons we learned in my post today at the Together Counts blog.

I just wanted to say I love how active you and your family are. My kids are still really young, but my oldest will be getting his first “real bike with pedals” for Christmas, and I’m looking forward to us being able to do fun things like this as a family when they get older! Way to set an example for living a fun, healthy lifestyle!
