How can i convince my parents to let me ride in the city? Every time i ask them why they won't let me, they just say "it's dangerous!". I live in the burbs. There are only a few good spots here, but there is some crazy awesome stuff downtown. I asked them if they would let me go with a friend, and they said yes, but none of my friends count because they aren't responsible enough. I'm getting bored of riding the same things over and over and it's starting to make me sad.

1. Tell them you are riding around your area.
2. Ride/get a ride to the city.
3. ???
4. Profit!

I do this pretty much every day, haha.... I've even gone to a skatepark 3 hours away, told my parents I was just riding around, and they didn't catch on haha. Am I cool, yet?

you know what it is with parents is this: they know you probably wont get messed with or hurt. they just don't want to have to worry about you when you are gone. Its selfish of parents. all you can do is lie and go anyway

I carry two knives with me all the time. That building is my one really great spot, but it's only ridable on the weekends. It's like two miles away.

I always wear a helmet when i ride, I am very cautious while crossing roads, i always tell my parents before i go biking, i'm just out of ideas of ways to get my parents to understand. They tell me about when they were kids their parents never knew where they were or what they were doing, my mom used to swim like two miles a day in the Chesapeake bay as a teen. I brought that up to her today and she just said "that was different and my parents shouldn't have let me." My dad grew up just outside of DC but for some reason he thinks i'm gonna get killed if i ride a bike in the city. And i can't really ride with a crew because none of my friends ride. They only time i've met people riding in my area, they were leaving to go ride in the city.

Just tell them
"Hey mom, dad. I want to ride my BIKE to the city and I am responsible enough to take care of myself"

If they say "NO!"

"Alright then, i'll just go to my room and do meth and shit."

You say BMX is your life but you barely ride.
BUT hey, That's none of my business.

Hey dude, I mean just get up real early and ride in one day. Leave a note and say you'll be back. Haha I think maybe if they went with you it'd be alright. See if they'll take you and watch haha

Just do it. Once they see you can do it without getting mugged/jumped etc etc they should be okay with it. I wouldn't have as much freedom with regards to where I ride if I didn't sneak out at like 5 am to ride with my friend...but seriously they're just worried about your safety, just do it to tpshow them you can without getting hurt and you should be okay

Honestly? Who gives a shit. Its the fucking internet. I hate all of you equally.

Seriously though Curtis, work with them. I DEFINITELY WOULD NOT just go without their permission.

Sit down with your mom and dad and say "Guys, I really want to ride in the city. There's gotta be something that I can do to convince you guys that I'll be alright out there." and see what they say. You're a smart kid, you'll know what to do after that.

Hey, someone that understands! That's pretty much what i did last night. The only progress was my mom saying "you can bike there someday, but not for a while." Which pretty much means i can go when i get my liecense. Two years is to long to wait!

I mean rules are rules. You may just have to deal with it man. Try your best to convince them though. Try bribing them. Like ask them if you can do some extra chores to show how much you want to go or something like that. Haha

If your mom is scared about it being dangerous, just show her some basic stats on richmond from google. It took me 5 seconds to find that crime has been reduced by 47% between 2004-2009 and it isn't on the rise. Also it might just be worth a shot to just go.
Depending on how your mom is, you might be able to just tell her after youve gone a couple times already, and look youre not dead and you didn't do anything stupid

just go man, they'll get over it. if you think you're responsible enough to stay out of trouble then you'll be just fine, and your parents will see that and hopefully acknowledge it.
you're riding your bike and having fun, not doing drugs, not murdering people, not raping little kids, not getting into gang wars, just riding yer bicycle.
