BRAEDEN BANVILLE, incoming sixth-grader at Bernice Ayer Middle School
Hello, my name is Braeden Banville, and this summer I went to a mountain bike camp. The first day was fun, but then the next day tragedy struck.
The City of San Clemente brought in a guy with a bobcat (utility vehicle) to destroy all of the jumps. Some of these jumps took seven to eight hours to build! Our camp leader biked all the way to the bobcat just to save his wood.
Now I don’t have anything against the City of San Clemente, but really? We just want to have some jumps here and there. We had to take time out of our camp just to rebuild them!
Now if there are any other MTB riders reading this, you know how it feels after working your butt off on a jump, and then someone comes and destroys it. That. Is. Horrible.
I hope the city understands my anger and that they won’t do it again.
