Dieselbikes member Nathaniel A.K.A. "The Kid" is a perfect example that even
at the young age of 13, he can still hang with the crew. He started
mountain biking at the age of 9 through a YMCA bike program in the Town of

Now riding a '05 Gary Fisher Kingfisher 2, The Kid is sure to be a local
rider for all to keep their eyes on. For his age, he rides, climbs and jumps

camaraderie to our group and we hope this provides a channel for younger
riders to get into this wonderful sport.
