All we can say about wee Mac is that he LOVES to ride. He's been on our very first Mac Ride prototype since the beginning and not a day goes by that he doesn't ask to take a spin.  We might bribe him the odd time with a sweetie, but mostly, he's just a happy, kind, adventurous, young lad.  (Does this mean we will have a cranky, acne-covered, bratty teen?!)

Mac Ride Testers: Brother and Sister Combo-- Griff and CC!

Griff and CC are our awesome brother and sister mac ride testing team from Squamish.  Looks like it's gonna be tough to get Griff off those hot red wheels, but we'll see if we can get a grin like that with him on Mac Ride with his Mom or Dad for the odd loop!

 I like to freeride in the mud, but then I like to clean my shoes. Any questions?
