Some People have places they call there second home. And the true Meaning to someones second home is a place where they are comfortable and spend a lot of time there. A second home is where you can meet your best friends and not worry about the outside world and anything else that's going on.
The name for the jumps "The Roots" came from two different places. The first one was when we were digging and building the jumps there was nothing but ROOTS! And anyone who builds there own jumps and trails know Roots are a pain in the ASS. the second reasoning behind the name is; this place brings us back to the roots of our riding. The main roots of Riding bikes are. Having fun, being with your best pals, and riding our bikes because its fun! The Roots grows off of these things there's two different lines at the moment one little line and one big line. When this place was built and is still growing in its own way it was meant to learn and grow on! We spend a lot of time riding with little kids and grown adults so there's no limits here this place is for fun and learn on a bike.
This place is owned by the most caring family in the entire world and the most supportive people in my life and I couldn't ask for a better caring, supportive, growing place to learn and ride.
the other great trait here is that everybody is willing to help dig and get dirty and have fun doing it. I guess "No Dig No Ride" is another big thing here. Even the young ones like digging
So next time your riding at you local spot think about how much this place means to you and how many friends you made there. Some places do help people grow from The Roots up.
