 Great that this is held on jumps that everyone can ride, and for free ! Transition Bikes showing what putting back into the commnity actually means, be nice if a few other companies followed suit.

 Anyone know the best route to reach Blue Steel with a toddler? I think it'd be fun to bring my 3yo daughter to this and would like the quickest easiest route to get there.

 I would think easiest fire road route would be from the South Lot take Pipeline Rd to the bottom of Cedar Jumps, cut up Pipeline-Wall Connector, hang a left on Rd 1200 and take it all the way to Blue Steel

 That's a tough one, but the route I took with my daughter (11yo on her bike) last year went up from the Birch Street side. Go to the end of Creekwood Ln, then up Up To Something for a bit, then take the road section over to The Old Up and take that up to road 1200. Head up the road past the SST intersection to the end, take V-Trail and you're there. 3 yo will be tough because it's not great for a stroller, she probably won't walk that far, and she'll be heavy to carry!

 @emptyvoxel: Thanks for the route suggestions. I'm hoping she'll be comfortable on the Kids Ride Shotgun seat for long enough to make it out there. I guess I'll give it a shot and see!

 Brooke Anderson. She’s amazing, 16 years old and so much talent. She had a bad crash at Proving Grounds but expect to see a lot more of her in the coming years.
