Review for Bikin' Dads Adventures, Concord, NC, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

From a parents perspective, these guys have a true passion & PATIENCE in what their doing. Watching them take the needed moments to educate, encourage & "ignite the inner bravery" of the many youth that attempt their next obstacle on the bicycle courses they bring cross the region. Not knowing of the whole concept initially, these guys & gals after speaking with the founder, Mark Gordon are all volunteers. With Mark funding 95% of the program since inception in 2014. His creative & obviously colorful bike courses keep the kids & adults most definitely entertained and enthused in learning those imperative skills for proper bicycle handling. Now, if they only had this when I was young, though I grew up with cinder blocks & plywood ramps in my day!

On a side note, I just hope these guys & gals find more support in both financial & physical help. Most events I've witnessed, the founder is out grinding in the heat & cold alone, with only one or two volunteers. While we know it's hard these days for all non-profits, these guys definitely have a niche in their programming. If only I had the funds, they would indeed be on my top list of tax deductible donations.
