Our first round of bike rides for this school year ended on a high note, with over 30 children from the neighboring villages of Zapata and Villa attending each of the last two outings! The new route with a long, winding climb presented a good challenge and tested everyone’s endurance. Once they’d conquered the hill, the kids relaxed and cooled off in the Cuixmala River after a picnic lunch. What a great way to start the weekend! We’ll be off on our second round of bike rides next week in the beachfront community of Punta Pérula.
