HIMBA Kids Rides
For Years now HIMBA member Yana Pethick has been conducting weekly after school trail rides on Wednesday afternoons for groups of 5 to 9 year-old children. The rides are usually about 6 to 10 kilometers long and take advantage of Hornby’s numerous kid friendly mountain trails as well as the road-side trail network. The are well attended, often consisting of between four and eight kids.
From time to time HIMBA members get up enough steam to produce a full-fledged Bike Race. The last one was The Hornby Spring Classic in 2011. It was a two day event consisting of a cross-country race, downhill race and kids event. The XC race saw 150 participants racing one, two or three laps on a 14 kilometer course and the DH had 46 participants tackling a six kilometer course. The kids race was very well received with over twenty kids in four categories taking on a one kilometer loop.
Perhaps this year or next we will all come together to put on a race, if you want to volunteer to lead the charge let us know.
