MIdwest Mountain Bike Summit
I just returned from a very enlightening experience in Grand Rapids, MI and the Midwest Mountain Bike Summit put on by the Michigan Mountain Bike Association. We spent a lot of time at the Grand Rapids Bike Park. Spending time there was truly inspiring, the park is located in a neighborhood that can use positive influences and it was obvious that it was doing just that. I loved seeing the kids just playing their hearts out and really having fun on their bikes, it makes me realize that this aspect of my job is perhaps the most important. Along with the bike park we also watched a killer Cross Race and certainly spent a lot of time at Founders Brewery!
