yesterday was parent teacher conferences
which mean... NO SCHOOL FOR THE BOY!
so... after meeting with the teachers we had time for an adventure
I loaded the Honda Element up with my boys... a kid from down the block... and assortment of bicycles
we drove just north of Columbia Maryland on Route 29 and went to The Rockburn Skills Park
we had a blast... the boys were pumping the track rather than pedaling the track by the time we finished
the drive is not cost effective for us to go here as frequently as we would like to go
the climb up the skill ladder is slow if the practice is infrequent
DC NEEDS A PUMP TRACK
we have baseball diamonds and we have basketball courts
there are astro turf soccer fields and indoor swimming pools
BUT THERE IS NO... I REPEAT NO!... sports facilities for bicycles!
PUMP TRACK AND LEGAL MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAILS WOULD ENRICH LIVING IN WASHINGTON DC!
