Things are in full swing here at Trips For Kids WNC! We have been slowly getting up to speed this year, starting in March with the Eblen Intermediate Bike Club. In April we helped organize and promote our local edition of Take A Kid Mountain Biking Day-Spring. I was not able to attend do to a scheduling conflict. Instead, I was at Sandhill Venable School, helping with a bike safety rodeo.
Earlier this week, the first week in May, we led a trip with the AB-Tech early college program. To finish out the week, and continuing through Monday, we are participating with Healthy Buncombe and the Blue Ridge Bicycle Club to facilitate a bicycle safety rodeo for Owen Middle School. We will be seeing close to 200 kids per day go through the program.
Thanks to I-9 for supporting us with a wheelset to raffle. Congratulations to Marc Macnab for winning the wheelset!!
