We had a super successful Bike Rodeo & Bike Swap Meet today with the Allandale Neighborhood on Lamar Middle School’s campus. A bunch of families came out to learn how to properly adjust their helmets, get their bikes checked over plus some basic maintenance by mechanics from Nelo’s Cycles and Sun & Ski Sports, and then ride on a series of skills courses. We had a controlled breaking and obstacle avoidance course, a right turn/left turn/stop signaling course and, the favorite of the day, the infamous Slow Race!
Thanks to everyone who came out for the event, especially our volunteers from the Ghisallo Cycling Initiative Racing Team who helped set-up and manage the riding portion of the event!
