How do you build a mountain bike? Boy Scouts of America volunteers put together hundreds to get ready for the Summit Shakedown.

In July, over 2,000 Scouts, Venturers and volunteers got to experience the Summit Bechtel Reserve for the first time. Mountain biking is one of the many high-adventure activities offered at the Summit.

But, to get ready, volunteers had to put the bikes together first. In this clip, Summit assistant program manager Dave Kopsa explains how the Scouting staff came together to get the job done.

The Summit Bechtel Reserve, located in West Virginia, is the BSA's new national high-adventure base and permanent home of the national Scout jamboree. You can learn more about the Summit at http://www.summitblog.org
