    My wife wouldn't have understood anyway.

    I thought they were never too young to start. I guess I was wrong.



    She wanted a card. I wonder if I can get a honorary membership.

    Yeah, explaining purchasing a racing license for a 7 year old would be easier for them to understand than the Missus. I think I'll just contribute to their youth program instead.

    One of my teams had a 7 year-old on the team after I left. He rode a lot with his older brother and dad, so he had decent riding skills. They just bought citizen's licenses and said he was 10.

    Please remember that all statements unless quoted, are strictly my opinion of what happened. That there are as many opinions as there are spectators attending. I just choose to publish mine on this forum. And would NEVER intend to purposely hurt or discredit any other cyclist.... With that said... HTFU!

    srsly... USCF doesn't allow racing under age 10. that's why you see the one-lap kiddie races with free entry for the under 10 crowd.

    I wouldn't allow her to race either.

    She found my license and when I told her what it was, she said she wanted one. I could have just bumped her age up to get the "card" issued, but I thought "racing age of 7 in 09" would look good. If it had 10 on it, I could hear it now. "That's not RIGHT!"

    With the 'racing age' B.S. on the license she should qualify for something next year. Heck, I halfway expect to se 15 yearolds in Masters soon enough.

    Photoshop.

    I know what it's like having the kiddies wanting what daddy has. My daughter wanted something to ride her bike on when I was on the trainer. Went into the garage, built up a frame to support the training wheels(she's only 2) and will finish the front block tomorrow. She loves bikes more than I do. She will just ride away for a good 30 minutes before she gets bored. Aren't kids wonderful!!

    Courtesy photo if you get the chance of your training wheeled trainer setup. I was looking to do that for my 3yo.

    Yeah I give my youngest all those fake credit cards that come in the mail. She collects them and puts them in her purse. Makes me wonder what sort of bad financial habits I'm training her for....
