i never EVER pass a kid at fast speeds. i had so many close calls with kids that i just give up. i love the fact that parents spend time with their kids outside of the house learning how to ride. but when they are barley keeping it on the road that is not good at all. the first thing i say to anyone about the trails is "when you see kids hit the brake" it sucks because you lose all your momentum but you know right when they are next to you they are going to dip to far over and clip you.

i admit i dont wear my helmet but i also ride very cautiously now and i anticipate a lot of things. if you ride a motorcycle you get the same way. you watch everything that is going on around you the weather, people, cars, roads. sorry to hear it and hopefully he is in a better place.
