I made this video of an 11 year old girl who was learning MTB in the Santa Cruz Mountains but in a couple of months was able to get down the famous 15 miles of the Downieville Downhill trails. Hopefully it will show what is possible for kids to accomplish and interest parents in the ride.
This video is a couple of years old and still very current. I’m moving it from my old channel to Intermediate MTB as I reorganize my media. The Thunder Mountain Trail in Utah is one of the best in the Western U.S. but is far from the popular regions and gets neglected by most riders. The 15 mile loop is worth the effort to get there and ride it!
I am setting up this site to augment my popular Trail Analysis For Intermediates series on YouTube and to blog about other issues important to intermediate mountain bikers. This site will include my MTB YouTube videos in posts. Please subscribe to this blog if you would like to stay current with issues for intermediate mountain bikers.
Subscribe To Intermediate MTB YouTube Channel as another way to be notified of new videos. My focus will be trails in California, Nevada, Utah, and Colorado and bike evaluations at times. I’m planning to re-visit Sedona, AZ where we used to bike long ago. The older videos on my personal channel will be replaced with new ones on this new channel. Finally getting a bit organized.
