Better on Bikes (BoB) evolved over the past few months to an in-person class called Pedal Up Natomas. Our first meeting was Saturday September 17 and I didn’t take a single picture. But Mellissa Meng did!
I am co-teaching with Deanna, a great LCI who frequently works for Jibe teaching Project Ride Smart and many other programs. (Aside: Deanna’s oldest daughter, of 3, just left for college at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo – the same college Thais attended 20+ years ago.) We have 12 participants – two of them, Brenda and Tracy, took BoB 4, which is great because they already have a lot of knowledge and can help others. Plus, two people from BoB1-Leo, and BoB2-Lennore volunteered. The first class focused on becoming ride ready. Our second meeting on September 24 included a 7-mile street ride with stops for teaching opportunities. Cheryl from BoB1 volunteered this meeting.
