If I could do anything for a living it would be traveling the word, riding bikes down steep trails, and filming every minute of it. Riding is exciting, dangerous but it is a good living especially if you’re sponsored and the only way to get sponsored is to film yourself. My job would literally require me ride and push myself everyday which is something I love doing anyways. It is only a good living if you know you can ride and it can go wrong when you least expect it. A serious injury from a bike will put you out of a job for long periods of time so you could consider this job high risk but it would definitely but the job I most desire. I can’t tell how many times I wish I had a bike when I was little. My mom finally got me one for my 5th birthday and ever sense then I’ve just been riding. I’ve spent most of my time riding on trails but riding a bike in general is just a good feeling. I want to be the person that inspires younger people to want to get on a bike because it is a simple activity that anyone can be apart of. Mountain biking has been one of my passions the past several years and I really do believe it can change some people lives, especially children from all over the world who are just getting into the sport or possibly considering it. I know this isn’t a dramatic effect on the entire world but traveling place to place and riding at different locations can give the people there a sense of how exciting and trilling riding your bike can be. Most kids wouldn’t have the chance to see what is capable on a bike and that’s why I feel like I should be responsible to do so. It is a fun sport and I know every kid deserves a chance to ride and there own bike.
