Last Southwood Bike Class

Today was our last bike class at the Southwood Boys and Girls Club Unit.  We held a 7 week class, which occurred every Monday for an hour.  The kids learned and practiced power pedal, straight line riding, scanning, and more.  Today, we went on about a 2 mile ride out and back from the club.  The kids stayed single file and did well controlling their speed on the downhills, and pushed hard on the uphills.  Afterward we went inside for pizza and to hand out their graduation certificates.  Everyone hopes to do more bike classes there.  This was one of the inaugural bike classes utilizing the new fleet bikes purchased with a grant from the Virginia Department of Health.  Hopefully there will be many more bike classes to come!
