Beyond the bike

Our weekend community bike rides continue to be a great success! By the end of this school year, we organized two rides for each of the eleven schools we serve, with an average of 30 kids and 3 adults participating each time. The program has also expanded to include an ecology education component. On a recent excursion through the hills surrounding the village of Juan Gil Preciado, our Foundation biologist, Alejandro Peña, showed students how to make casts of animal tracks and shared his wealth of knowledge of local plants and wildlife through a fun scavenger hunt!
