Pay attention to all of the the wonderful things cycling has to offer. It can take you places you never thought you'd you'd go. Find people that have experience and make friends with them. And know, it'll take way longer then you think to get better, so be patient.
Why do you support outride?
I support Outride and getting kids on bikes because I know what it’s like coming from a tough neighborhood. The bike gave me perspective, and it allowed me to escape a mindset and destiny fed to me since I was a kid. The bike gave me hope and provided me with positive influences. Specialized is putting a little more of that into the world.
