Start ’em Young – Mountain Biking?

Ok, not exactly mountain biking, but a bike that can get kids biking a bit earlier than when I started (I think I started around 7). I went to an art show curated by a friend of mine the other day and the subject of kids and outdoor activities came up, apparently she’s got her […]
