Jumping Bike Ride Choose Your Own Adventure

Helmet securely fastened, you stand at the start of the suburban neighborhood BMX track. As you pedal hard, the jump looms. You commit, lift off, soaring through the air. Write a narrative that includes the exhilaration of the jump, the moments of suspension, and the landing that awaits.

Things to think about when choosing this path:

  1. Can you describe the BMX track and what might be around you?
  2. How does the helmet feel on your head?
  3. How does your heart feel as you’re in mid-air? Is it racing with excitement or pounding with fear?
  4. How did you prepare for this jump? Can you describe the moment you decided to go for it?
  5. How do your hands feel on the handlebars? And your feet on the pedals?
  6. What are your thoughts as you’re about to land? What do you anticipate you’ll feel when you land?
