Why Mountain Biking is Good for Kids and Teens

Posted by Jud Millar

Tue, Mar 26, 2019

The sport of mountain biking is growing exponentially, and this is especially true for kids and teenagers.  Here are some of the reasons that mountain biking is good for kids and teenagers:


Kids “Unplug” and Reconnect with Nature:

Kids and Teens today are often referred to as “screenagers”. According to a report by Common Sense Media tweens age 8 to 12 spend 6 hours a day in front of screen while teens spend 9 hours on screens.  Mountain biking inherently takes place in nature.  Kid and teens who mountain bike reconnect with nature often without even realizing it.
