The Chris Clark Bicycle Stunt Show was developed to inspire children and young adults to find an active, healthy passion and use their desire to constantly improve as a means for keeping their lives on track, making healthy decisions and surrounding themselves with like-minded friends.
During his high energy presentations, professional cyclist Chris Clark shares his story of growing up with a passion for cycling and how he used that passion to make friends, stay healthy, and even as an excuse to avoid the peer pressures all children face.
Each presentation focuses on responsible practice techniques, incremental increases in difficulty, and the importance of helmet safety.
Following the speaking portion of the program, Chris demonstrates what is possible with hard work and dedication with an exhibition of the skills he has developed in his years of national and international cycling competition. Attendees see first-hand what can be achieved when you stay safe, stay healthy, and follow your passion.
