community bike rides
In order to engage more of the local population with our Sports & Recreation Program, we began two years ago to lead bimonthly weekend community bike rides. An average of 35 children, parents, and community members participate in these events, which promote an active lifestyle while instilling an appreciation for nature and respect for the environment.
We lend bicycles to children who do not have their own and offer basic mechanical services for those who do. Helmets, water, first aid, and support transportation are also provided. Each ride begins in the center of a local village and follows a scenic, safe, and skill-level-appropriate route that almost always includes an opportunity to play at a beach, in a nearby river, or in the Pacific Ocean.
