Edible Pedal 100

Posted: Updated:

Trevor DeRuise is a professional mountain biker.  But his passion is getting kids involved in cycling. "It's a lifelong sport that kids can start now and take it as far as they want to go for as long as they want to go."

On this day, I got to ride with Trevor. He's helping Mark Kattelman with the Edible Pedal 100 ride. As Mark explains, the goal of this ride is right in line with Trevor's passion. "The big thing though is to get kids off the couch, away from the video games and get them out riding. We love mountain bike riding. We love cycling. Anything that has to do with getting kids active."
Now in it's 5th year, the Edible Pedal continues to grow. But for those who have never done it, keep this in mind. "Oh it's not a race, it's a road ride. It's a recreational ride."

There are three different rides.  One is a century. There's also a 50 miler and then the popular 10 mile family ride. "I know in our ride it's about 20% of our 1,000 riders come out that are kids that are probably down under let's say 18 and under on that."
No matter which ride you choose, the food along your course will be delicious, the views are feasts for your eyes, and you will be helping kids live healthier lives. "With an event like this it's really safe to ride on the roads, you get to meet a lot of people and it's some of the best riding in our area," says Trevor.
