Community Bike Ride: Miguel Hidalgo Nuevo & Miguel Hidalgo Viejo

On the first Saturday in June, we rode to Playa Tenacatita with the children from the adjoining villages of Miguel Hidalgo Nuevo and Miguel Hidalgo Viejo. Our mechanics and volunteers first led the students of Miguel Hidalgo Viejo on a route to Miguel Hidalgo Nuevo, where they joined with the mechanics, volunteers, and children waiting in the plaza. With both schools attending, this was one of our larger and longest bike rides, with 45 children and 5 adult chaperones riding 35 kilometers roundtrip. Once at the beach, we all enjoyed a rest for an hour and cooled down in the waves while community volunteers prepared a delicious lunch.
