The members of the group collectively represent four age groups: 4-6 years old; 6-9 years old; 9-14 years old; and ages 14 and older.

The majority of the group is made up of children, but at least two are in their teenage years and another pair are adults.

Ok, now begins a new phase of Ride of the Week. Let’s call it “Leveling Up.” Or maybe ROTW Ver2.0. And what does that mean?

It means that, although four wheels are cool, two can be cool, too. In fact, taking a ride in just about anything in Malibu is completely awesome and I’ll be proving that in the next few weeks when I take a spin in Malibu Engine 70’s Fire Truck for a 5Minute Drive upcoming episode.
