Saddle Up Saturday

The goal was to meet at Bad Bakers between 9:45-10:15. Cheryl, Leo, Barbara and I left from Four Seasons Westshore at 9:00.

Everyone who arrived by bicycle had 2 choices. I would buy them a donut or they could spend $10 and get a $15 gift card. This little event was pretty good, nice turnout. Below, Sue and Rich (BoB3), Barbara (BoB1), Sergio (BoB3), Rich and Mary, Cheryl (BoB1), Leo (BoB1):

Project Ride Smart

The last day with the final two 5th grade classes.

Two groups of great kids. One of the fun attributes of Project Ride Smart at Natomas Park Elementary is a parallel dirt trail with a narrow path, bumps, wet areas, a hill with a little mud. Students have the option to ride it, most choose to do it laughing and/or screaming all the way.

Charlie Heieck took this picture of the NPE team – Mellissa, Gina, me, Deanna, Sue:

This was too much fun not to do it again … as needed. I also like not working 🙂

Project Ride Smart

At Natomas Park Elementary. I got to ride with the Blue group – what a lucky draw! These kids KNOW how to ride. They give hand signals, can complete a proper left turn and navigate a 4-way stop following the right-of-way rules. I worked with these two classes on Monday and today.

At the end of the day. All the bikes are tightly packed along one wall. Gina and Deanna are debriefing on the final day of Project Ride Smart.

We had many volunteers so all skill levels were well-covered.

Fun day! Great kids.
