We introduced our family to dirt bike riding for a new family “thing”. My husband, Sandy, had ridden as an adolescent and can tell you all kinds of wild stories of screaming up the powerlines with friends. Don’t ask to hear about the time his father painstakingly tweezed gravel out of his back. Sore subject.Continue reading “It Only Lasts a Moment: So Hang On”

Fake It ‘Til You Make It

One of the most badass moments I can recall in recent memory came from none other than our soft-spoken, clover plucking, 11-year-old girl rider, Lily.

Helmets and Handle Bars

Combined a Perfect Storm Awaits. It’s every moto-mom’s worst nightmare. Race day, things appear to be going well, a little too well. Another family is passing out celebratory Bloody-Mary’s, but our own child-racer still has another heat coming up. “No thanks- I want to keep a clear head in case there are any ambulance calls!”,Continue reading “Helmets and Handle Bars”

Get A Kid Into MX and They’ll Never Have Money For Drugs

Parenting from a slightly different perspective… Let me show you what I mean.​ Christmas morning 2019, the stars had somehow aligned and four really awesome kids had no idea what was coming. While not new, we had somehow come into four bikes. A little tweak here, a little mechanical know-how there and they all ran.Continue reading “Get A Kid Into MX and They’ll Never Have Money For Drugs”
