Since starting Off the 56, I’ve realized that San Diego is a very entrepreneurial city. I love getting to highlight all the small businesses around the 56 and help showcase people who are chasing their dreams.
On this week’s episode of Off the 56, I met up with local resident, Sean Bascom, who runs the youth mountain biking program, Sprockids, in San Diego.
Sprockids is an all inclusive “Nobody Sits on the Bench” sport! Sprockids seeks to foster a lifelong love of the sport of mountain biking. The program teaches off-road skills through drills, games, and fun activities while tracking individual progress. Sprockids also gives kids the skills, values, and strategies they need to ultimately succeed in life.
This is a great program for your kids as mountain biking is something you can enjoy as a family in San Diego. The MTB Project has mapped over 180 miles of trails in San Diego County – and counting! We have tons of great trails and open space parks right here Off the 56.
So if you’re looking to give your kids a solid introduction to the sport of mountain biking and want to get them involved with a fun program that gets them outside, challenges them, and educates them at the same, check out the Sprockids group on Facebook for more information.
