    This is great for the Kids I can remember racing 3 boards 4 wheels and a rope to steer down Prospect Ave. and Ontario St by Kentwood nursing home. We didn’t have aerodynamics brakes or helmets but we went really fast those are big hills..Im not sure who organized those events back then but surely these Kids will have fond memories of their experience too. Great Story..
