They say you never forget how to ride a bike, but it wouldn't hurt to take this class in Rockford.

I know mountain biking is very popular, especially, in and around Rockford. I have friends that every weekend in the summer they hit the trailers and go for miles. They love it.

I get invited but I always turn it down. I haven't been on a bike since I turned 16 and got my driver's license. I think it would be something I enjoy but I'm kind of afraid. I don't want to crash and get hurt.

I'm sure I could still ride a bike but not some serious cycling. It would be nice if I could go somewhere to learn more about it. Of course, f there's something you want to know how to do, I guess what, There's someone out there willing to teach it.

In this case, it's the Rockford Park District.

From their website,,

"Learn basic skills for maximum enjoyment on the trails. We’ll cover how to properly set up your bike, what clothes to wear, where to ride, and how all these variables work together."

It's an "Intro To Mountain Biking" class on September 12th from 9 am to noon at Atwood park.

Now, all I need is a bike so I can give it a try.
