You always see so many boys that have progressed and come so far as they've always just played around on their bikes since a young age, whether it be on a bmx, jump bike, or mountain bike. But why don't we see any girls giving it a go? How many girls do you see at your local skatepark on a Friday night? I don't know because I've never been before, maybe because I'm scared or just a bit intimidated.
On a fresh Monday morning, with a fire to learn new things, myself and Bex set out on our dirt jump bikes. After some of our finest 'jibbing' we head to the skatepark. Being a school day we had the whole place to ourselves, no one laughing at us or judging us. As we're at a similar level we just encouraged each other to push our boundaries and learn new things!
We then went on to some dirt jumps, where at first I wasn't sure, but after some inspiring words from Bex we were both away! It may not look like much, but I'd never expected to get this far in one day... why have I never tried all this before?! If we carry on playing, practicing, and learning like this, what will be able to do in a fortnight, a month, or a year?!
