Duthie Hill Park hosts Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day on Saturday, as Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance and Cascade Bicycle Club offer a free mountain biking event.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, and includes trail riding, a children’s obstacle course, a jump show from local and pro riders, a free barbecue and prizes at the park near Issaquah. The event is open to all ages, and parents can ride with children.

Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day is a yearly celebration meant to encourage communities around the globe to join together and ride mountain bikes with youths. In 2011, the Duthie Hill Park event hosted more than 100 children.

“Exposing kids to mountain biking and the outdoors is an important part of what we do through our education program,” Stacy Karacostas, Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance communication and membership director, said in a statement. “Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day is a great way to get kids hooked on a fun and healthy activity while creating the next generation of outdoor athletes and advocates”.

Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day celebrates the life of Jack Doub, a teenage mountain biker from North Carolina who had a passion for the sport from a young age until his death in 2002.
