  • Malcolm, YOU ROCK man!

    I'm sure by now you've heard, or better yet seen the amazing video of little 4 year old Malcolm shred the trails of Highland Mtn Bike Park in New Hampshire! Dad strapped on a helmet cam to the little man and Malcolm narrates the ride. As a mom of a 5 year old, I have to admit, this video made me cry. Yeah, I might be a sap but it made me cry because it truly drives home the importance of GETTING KIDS OUTSIDE!!! This is one of the reasons why UpaDowna exists! And Malcolm, you better bet that you are now a honorary VIP of UpaDowna! Your t-shirt and stickers are on the way!

  • Pikes By Bikes!

    What would you do if you had the opportunity to cycle 19 miles up a paved 14er. Would you do it? What if you're a semi-active, new-to-cycling mom in her 30's...would you still do it?! Well, I had that opportunity and took it. I straight took that bull by the horns.
