We’ve all worked with challenging budgets & space requirements… That’s why we also offer our same motivational programs without all of the extra labor of bringing in large ramps. Take a look at our video below to see how creative our bike tricks are with no jumps at all… The exact same excitement & motivational messages, for a friendlier budget.
Add a memorable experience into your kids’ year by inviting Ride MN Founder, Dustin Grice, to bring his bike and speak with your kids, often even teamed up with another local professional athlete. Dustin is Eden Prairie, Minnesota’s very own BMX Pro featured in Minneapolis Nitro Circus and Explore Minnesota Tourism’s Super Bowl LII TV Commercial. This is a perfect base package to start with, available with many different Optional Add-Ons depending on your goal and available budget.
Our GoalOur Number 1 Goal is to profoundly reach every audience on an emotional and mental level with an Energetic, Jaw Dropping, Influential and Inspirational narrative that will change lives and kickstart motivation for a lifetime… Just like the BMX Show that changed our lives 20 years ago… Our choices since then have led us to become well spoken, career oriented, hobby enthusiasts who continue to follow their dreams of being professional athletes while also pursuing real world careers.
Having Mega Jump at our event was an experience our youth (and adults!) will always remember... Many of our kids come to us with multiple ACES (adverse childhood experiences). For most it is trauma, but for others it is physical conditions in their home environment or a disability. Dustin and his riders performed an outstanding motivational show. It gave kids an opportunity to forget their ACES and heal. The riders were kind, caring, and showed a genuine compassion for the kids. Dustin’s message was particularly fitting in that he catered it specifically to our school’s core beliefs. Thank you Mega Jump, you have made our Kindness Week an unforgettable experience!
It was such a fun program and the kids were absolutely having a blast. One of my friends has a son (8 years old) who has been hesitant to ride a bike with two wheels. He ran up to her after the program and said he wanted to start learning. Very inspiring. I know my daughter couldn’t wait to find Reed on Youtube. Looking forward to seeing some of the video

Meet Our Founder: Dustin GriceOne day while growing up in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, 5th Grader Dustin Grice went to school and was surprised by a jaw-dropping Freestyle BMX assembly in the gymnasium. Within an hour, Dustin met his first professional athlete and received an autograph from Trevor Meyer, a 3-time X-Games Gold Medalist. Since that day, Dustin started riding his bike at home trying to be like his new idol, and soon found a new life-long passion that would follow him through high school, college, and working a 'real world' career. Today, nearly 20 years later, Dustin is an instructor at Hennepin Technical College, has been on the cover of BMX Plus! Magazine, has opened Minneapolis' very own indoor bike park offering lessons for kids, and has even performed in an action sports show you may have seen on TV called Nitro Circus. Dustin's love for riding bikes has brought him all around the world to places he learned about in school including Africa, Australia, Asia, Europe, and South America. You can watch Dustin online and his 'Lil Pros Tour' videos featuring the youngest talent in BMX with over 2 million views on YouTube. For the past 10 years, Dustin has even been performing together with his idol Trevor Meyer, completing a full circle which all goes back to that one memorable day in school... What is your passion?
