"This program is part of our trips for kids program at Southeast Youth Corps And we are fortunate enough to work with all these awesome Howard students, and partner with Lookout Mountain Conservancy to do a dual conservation service and earn a bike, mountain bike program."
"We do have to hike over the ravine here and this hill to get to our mountain bike site and the trails which are back there. We ride of the Gill Hardy trail, which is a nice easy beginner mountain bike trail for people to start out on."
"It's not as bad as it seems. I thought it was going to be super duper hard, but it's really, it's hard, but it's not as hard as I thought it was."
"This is probably the best part of my week. I get to, Monday through Wednesday I'm thinking, I can't wait to go ride with the high school students from Howard. It's a lot of fun and I just enjoy being here."
"We are trying to open up a discipline or a sport that some people may not get to experience before. We do have 13 or 14 mountain bikes that we bring out to the site. We have helmets and air pumps, and all the gear that anyone would need."
"Well, my favorite part of being out here is riding bikes, because it's a different experience for me. I mean I ride, rode bikes, but mountain bikes is a little different and challenging, and I like it."
"I'm getting a little better at it each and every time I come out here, and downhill, I love downhill. And I can just whip it and go."
"We're hoping that they pull away, you know, fortitude and grit and determination, and maybe some stronger leg muscles. And kind of some knowledge about the outdoor recreational opportunities that exist in Chattanooga that a lot of people don't get to access."
