Two Wheels of Awesome – Episode 8

Thanks to Rolando Roman and the CX Project 2015 crew we held a Cyclocross Clinic for two months on Tuesdays with our Boys and Girls Club students who earn and maintain bikes in our Youth Bike Shop and Earn-A-Bike Program on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Youth riders were able to head to parks to explore and pick up some CX skills, like hopping barriers and riding through sand traps, once we got there. Along the way we reinforced working as a team, mutual support and self management.

On 10/28 we had a huge class of 17 participants and Zarrianna, Denzel, Floyd and Irma were great group leaders offering encouragement and support to other riders. Especially Zerrianna who took a tumble but kept rockin and rolling.

 

Gathering for a big day of training:
