Lock your bike kids. You never know when a dodgy NorCal surfer is going to take a liking to it. Good luck prying Mark off that Owl. When was the last time you smiled riding your kid's bike? By the way, Mark, those Hurley board shorts are sweet.
From littlest riders sending ride-ons down ramps, to scavenger hunts and so many Princess Bride quotes, the entries were amazing! We had the hardest time selecting a winner -- honestly, they were all great. But without further ado, our vote for the prize goes to this one:
Air filled tires are simple and amazing invention, so much so that today we take them for granted.

The kids are going back to school! If you’re like me, the parent of a Hedgehog rider, you likely woke up this morning to find that your four-year-old crawled into bed with you last night and is softly snoring into your face.

My son goes to sleep on his own, for instance, but he still ends up crawling into our bed before morning.
