It seems that every ‘thing’ these days, no matter how niche, as its own special, celebratory day. Waffle day (25th March), Cow appreciation day (18th July). The activity of Walking has its own whole month (May)!
Some of them are just bizarre. International hug a virtual assistant day (6th July) anyone?
But some of them are right on the money.
Hats off to Fox Racing for coming up with the idea of an international day of appreciation for Mountain Biking. I mean obviously, every day is a great day to ride rails. But sometimes a little excuse to saddle up is all you need. It certainly was for us.
So here we are. The first Blacks MTB Team, celebrating the inaugural international #RideMTBDay.
Risking our lives, in exchange for a few hours out of the office. And let me just say, with only minor bruising and some light internal bleeding…it was totally worth it!
Full disclosure: When I say Blacks MTB team…what I really mean is a rabble of riders with mountain bikes. Some of them more bike shaped. But at least we all looked the part. Thanks, Fox Racing!
Calling all riders. We're giving away a head to toe Fox Head outfit in our Facebook photo competition. Send us a photo of you 'ripping rails' for a chance to win.
