Letter to the Editor: Kids and their bikes need a place

I was at Walleck Ranch Park with my son and daughter recently. When we arrived, there was a group of about eight boys riding there bikes and video taping their tricks. They were not bothering anybody when an adult male approached and said they could stay at the park as long as they kept their language in check.

Well, one of the boys fell off his bike, and when he hit the ground he cursed. The adult approached the boys at that point and told them they had to leave the park.

The weird thing was there was a group of adults having a party at the tables. They were cursing a lot more and louder than those boys.

My two sons both ride bikes and any given weekend there could be up to 15 boys in my backyard riding the ramp. The point is, I hear talk about a bike track to be built in Kingman. If this is true, I would volunteer my time and skills to help make this happen. They are not allowed to ride at the skate park, and these boys need a place to ride and do tricks. It keeps them busy and out of trouble
