Family Send: ‘Bear With Us’ Shows You’re Never Too Young to Shred

Watch as one family — and their 3-year-old — take on some of the best singletrack trails in the South.

When your parents are an adventurous RN mom and a raft-company-owning dad, you grow up with access to some pretty epic experiences. Now, lots of kids have exposure to things like learning to ride a bike, exploring a local trail, maybe playing in the snow. Maybe even camping.

But how about checking out 20 miles of flowy singletrack? Meet 3-year-old Bear Crawford, son of Katie and Dave Crawford. He’s ready to take on the challenge.
