A Baltimore-based organization is launching a new campaign, embracing both young people and their love for mountain biking.

The wind. How fast the bike is going. You’re going to another world,” said B-360 rider Treasure Tremble. don’t really just do it for fun. I do it because it’s actually a passion. I just want to see my city, my community and my youth come together,” said B-360 pilot Daron Harell.

A Baltimore-based organization is launching a new campaign, embracing both young people and their love for mountain biking.

B-360 aims to introduce young cyclists to safe spaces, where they can prepare for a future career.

The organization is very clear, it is not about encouraging children to ride mountain bikes in the streets but about taking the hobby out of circulation and putting it elsewhere.

And just recently, B-360 was given the green light by Mayor Brandon Scott, and now the organization is working to expand, with its own dirt bike campus, where they can ride freely around the city of Baltimore.

“The adrenaline. The wind. The speed of the bike. You enter another world,” said B-360 pilot Treasure Tremble.

“I’m not really doing it just for fun. I’m doing it because it’s actually a passion. I just want to see my city, my community and my youth come together,” the B-360 pilot said, Daron Harrell.

Brittany Young, founder of B-360, explains the importance of harnessing energy and where it could lead.

“It’s about harnessing that energy so that no matter where they go in life, they succeed.”

Young started the organization in 2017, and since then she said she’s helped put 7,000 children in a better direction, with goals that reduce the number of cyclists in traffic, increase safety and divert passion of these cyclists towards future STEM careers.

“I want to do something special. I want to say hello to the mayor,” Scott said Friday at a press conference.

He praised the group’s efforts, promoting March 25 as B-360 Day, and plans to build a 20-acre motocross campus in the city.

“It would be really huge. It would be amazing,” Harell said.

Many children told 11 News that the space would not only be used for mountain biking, but also for building relationships and fulfilling dreams.

“A lot of people make it look like every runner hurts on the streets, but we’re trying to do something right,” Tremble said.

A few of the boys who spoke with 11 News on Monday said they wanted to use their knowledge of dirt bikes and become mechanics.

Tremble, the young girl, says she wants to become a psychiatric nurse.

Plans are still underway to find exactly where this motocross campus would go.

The fundraising goal is over $10 million over the next few years.
