The pits at races are full of campers and RV’s, kids and family pets, general chaos and parents who look around and exclaim “I wouldn’t change this for the world.” The scene is more National Lampoon than Norman Rockwell, but the opportunity to travel as a family and be inspired by their children’s commitment to a sport is all the reward needed to balance a parent’s devotion.

Video: Heavy Pedal Tour–Granby Ranch

09.09.2013 //

Granby Ranch, formally known as Sol Vista, was a hidden gem where only bike ninjas would come and practice their big bike tricks. They had huge gap jumps and large wooden (drop) features.
