Got Bikes?...Ride 'em! - Part 6

This past week we had the final installment of the Got Bikes?...Ride 'em! This week we were at the Callahan Neighborhood Center on North Parramore. We were graced by Commissioner Daisy W. Lynum, and she stressed her strong belief in cycling as healthy transportation and encouraged safety while riding.

It was a great day with about 75 kids, and we gave away 6 new bikes and helmets to the lucky winners. It was sad that it was the last event for this calendar year, but it was great to think about the record number of kids that we got to address about bike safety and donate over 30 bikes.

Thanks has to go out to Charles Brown and Cristina Cruz from the City of Orlando's Transportation Department for the great events and for allowing me to help out.
