Dual Sport Riding Guide Benefits PBTF
The author of the Essential Guide to Dual Sport Motorcycling is donating all royalites earned to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation's Ride for Kids, which raises money for childhood brain tumor research.  
The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation's Ride for Kids program has enjoyed the backing of the dual sport motorcycling community for many years. In Southern California alone, dualies have raised more than $847,000 for the PBTF's medical research and family support programs. Now a new book targeted to dual sport enthusiasts is contributing even more to the cause.

The Essential Guide to Dual Sport Motorcycling is a comprehensive, fully illustrated handbook that offers riders at all levels a broader perspective of the dual sport experience. It also gives readers a chance to help cure childhood brain tumors, because author Carl Adams is donating his royalties to the PBTF.

Adams, a seasoned rider and former enduro racer, says, "The satisfaction from writing a book is transitory, but the satisfaction from helping the PBTF is enduring."

The PBTF enthusiastically endorses the book, as does off-road racing champion and Motorcycle Hall of Famer Malcolm Smith. "I found that The Essential Guide to Dual Sport Motorcycling is packed with useful information, presented skillfully, and illustrated abundantly," he wrote in the book’s foreword. "[It] conveys the fun of the sport without trivializing the need to learn to do it properly." 

The Essential Guide to Dual Sport Motorcycling is available here from Whitehorse Press. The next Ride for Kids dual sport event takes place June 14 in San Bernardino, Calif.

About the PBTF Ride for Kids®
The national Ride for Kids program and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation (PBTF) promote childhood brain tumor research and provide family support through free literature about brain tumors, educational newsletters, online conferences and college scholarships. America's motorcycling community has helped the PBTF become the world's largest non-governmental source of funding for childhood brain tumor research.

This year there are 39 Ride for Kids events around the U.S., including a new event in Franklin, Tenn., on May 17. For more information, go to www.rideforkids.org/ or call 800-253-6530.
