FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

WHAT KIND OF BIKE DOES MY KIDDO NEED?

The bike they already have is of course best. That being said, a bike with gears is pretty important to keep it fun. No one loves pushing their bike up hills. Please reach out if you have more questions about this, and we're happy to chat with you more to try to get your kiddo out on the trail.

HOW OFTEN DO THE BLUE-TAILED SKINKS MEET?

We aim to do three rides a month. We generally meet on Sundays.

WHAT ARE THE RIDES LIKE?

It depends, we're constantly looking for new kid-friendly trails, so if you know of some please pass them along. It's not uncommon for us to split the group depending on rider ability.

DO YOU KNOW OF ANY GOOD WEBSITES OUT THERE FOR MOUNTAIN BIKING KIDS AND THEIR PARENTS?

There are a lot of great resources out there. One we like and use is The Bike Dads.

I DON'T RIDE, IS THAT OKAY?

Yes. If you're a riding family, then parents please join in. If your kiddo is itching to get out and you don't ride, that's okay. Please plan to stay at the location during the ride.

I HAVE ANOTHER QUESTION.

Great, reach out and we'll chat.

THIS IS ALL WELL AND GREAT BUT I'M LOOKING FOR INFORMATION ON THE ACTUAL LIZARD CALLED A BLUE-TAILED SKINK, YOU KNOW,  AKA PLESTIODON SKILTONIANUS.

Great, here's a start for you. :-) https://fishbio.com/field-notes/wildlife-ecology/blue-caboose
