I Got To Help Host A Youth Skills 123 Clinic At The Allen Family Bike Day

More Instruction

Last weekend, I worked with BikeDFW and proudly participated at the Allen Family Bike Day – helping with a Youth Skills 123 course at the event. Headed by League Cycling Instructor Dorothy Zarbo, I was part of a team of LCIs which also included fellow LCI training graduates, Betsy Veneziano and Francis Schommer. We worked with local elementary and middle school students to run a successful Bike Rodeo for Allen kids.

We had a great time working with the kids, who in turn, helped others learn some basic safety skills. Kids learned how to signal their stops, left & right turns as well as how to yield in traffic. Since helmets were required on the course, some were loaned out by the City of Allen to those who forgot theirs. I’m hoping parents were inspired to remind their kids to continue wearing theirs.

I love doing these types of events, and I hope to do more across the DFW Metroplex.

Support Team Bike Friendly Richardson at the WildRide!

with one comment

I’ll be representing Bike Friendly Richardson at the 2010 WildRide. Because I’m the designated BFR as a team, they’ve asked me to pull together some donations.

This is the last day to donate, so if you are in the mood to help out a great cause, click here to step up.

EDIT: Looks like they’ll be taking donations up until the event on May 15. It’s not too late to donate.
