Dirt bike club held successful Kids Day

The Southern Okanagan Dirt Bike Club held its second annual Kids Day event

Kids Day for the Southern Okanagan Dirtbike Club (SODC) on May 14 was a big success.

The second annual event held on Mother’s day was capped at 13 kids aged three to 11. At the Okanagan Falls staging area, the young riders learned about skills, bike care, trail etiquette, taking part in group rides, and of course they had fun. The day ended with a group ride.

“The kids showed great improvement throughout the day,” said Karla Brandt of SODC. “Most of all, the kids had a great time and made new friends with like interests.”
