VIDEO: THE  CRANKWORX COMMUNITY Part 2

 

Telus Optik TV's second part of the Crankworx community is not your regular bikers' action run edit or anything like that. It is about average folks who hold regular jobs but enjoy cycling just as much as the pro riders. These folks influence people around them with their passion for the sport and are regularly doing what they love with them too. Check out how the Goldstone family's kids were given a chance to do something they love, with the encouragement and support from their family. This is one best way to promote cycling to the younger generation.

 

(Kidsworx – A crankworx event. Promoting the sport starts from young.)

 

 

PASSION FOR A SPORT STARTS FROM THE FAMILY

 

We often hear about bikers claiming they want to play a part in promoting cycling. If you are already doing this, kudos to you mate! If not, here's how. The best place to start promoting cycling is from your own home! Be it your siblings, spouse or children – a family that shares a common interest grows! And we are talking about both growth in family bonding and growth in the interest for the sport. We have heard many stories of outstanding sports personalities coming from a family that are equally involved in the said sports. The statistics have it then! Everything starts with the family! Start the promotion of the sport with your family, then your extended family and friends. Your enthusiasm will eventually be felt by the community. To extend this line of thought further, a brand or shop that is operated by bikers will show passion that non-biker brands/shops cannot emulate. You cannot fake passion… Alright, we digressed. Now read about the example we mentioned and enjoy the video.

 

 

 

TELUS OPTIK TV FEATURES THE CRANKWORX COMMUNITY

TRIOLOGY OF SHORTS CONTINUES WITH LOCAL FAMILY’S STORY

Mountain biking together, and enjoying the Crankworx festival, keeps the Goldstone family tight

 

Telus Optik TV showcases the Crankworx experience through the eyes of a family today with the release of a second episode of this Community Programming series focused on the Whistler mountain bike community. Ron Goldstone and Miriam Bailey’s 10-year-old son, Jackson, is already a sponsored rider, but mountain biking is clearly more than a means to competitive success for this crew.

 

In 8 Awesome Things with The Goldstones, the family of dirt enthusiasts tells the world why life from vantages like the Top of the World, a run in the Whistler Mountain Bike Park, is so “awesome.”

 

“Living where we do in B.C. here, it’s really easy for us to get together and go for a quick trip down the BMX track or a quick cross-country loop… It’s just nice to be able to spend a lot of time doing stuff that I think everyone loves in the family,” says Ron Goldstone

The Goldstone kids, Bailey and Jackson, compete in Kidsworx, the Crankworx competitive events for those under age 15, and the entire family takes advantage of the festival’s 10-day run to spend some quality time enjoying their life’s passion together.

 

 

 

DOING THE SPORT YOUR LOVE IN ASIA

 

We may not have a mega sized bike parks near where we live. We may not all be able to afford the best bikes for ourselves or our family. But that's not going to stop anybody from picking up biking. For beginners, there are parks and park connector networks (PCN) for you to hone up your skills before tackling more technical or longer routes. For the more experienced riders, the Asia region is full of beautiful single tracks of varying technical difficulties and distance that is suitable for the family.(We feature various biking destinations from time to time, so do keep yourself posted with us) An entry level mountain bike can cost as little as SGD$500, in some cases lower if you manage to snatch a bargain piece or a pre-loved piece. It's so easy to pick up a bike and start riding. Anywhere. As long as your family and you start riding.

The three-part program was made possible by a Community Programming Production Support grant from TELUS Optik Local Community Programming.  The Series highlights the many ways Crankworx draws new mountain bike enthusiasts into the fold, allowing riders of all levels and abilities to improve their skills, connect with the scene and, generally, push the boundaries of what is possible to do on a bike. All three episodes of the program will be available for free on demand on TELUS Optik TV.
