For the past week or so, I’ve been getting ready to teach another round of Better on Bikes. The class filled up quickly – a very good sign. And 6 of the people in Arlete’s BIG are taking the class!
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.

After Avery’s soccer game, I drove to Lucille’s Smokehouse in Rocklin and picked up dinner for two!
Better than sitting in a crowded restaurant, picking up dinner, cocktails and dessert included, and sharing my birthday with a good friend is the best. Thanks Adrienne!
