I think my favorite bmx memory would have to be the first time I went to the park. I was 16, and was, and still am, the only girl rider at the park. I dragged my mom along with me because I was so nervous about riding for the first time. I sat on my bike, doing absolutely nothing for the better part of an hour. I was about to leave when one of the veterans at the park started talking to me. I told him I was pretty nervous, and he told me to follow him. He rode around the park with me showing me all the best spots to start. I guess when it comes down to it, it just embraces the overall vibe of the bmx community. Noone cares who you are or what your experience level is, they're just there to ride. Afterall, we do ride little kid's bikes. You've just gotta have fun.
