We had so much fun this morning at Salt Spring Elementary, where probably about 40 students brought bicycles or scooters to school and enjoyed snacks, stuck stickers on their helmets, got free bike tune-ups from Sean at Outspokin Bikes, and cruised the cone course on the playground. They can't get enough of the playground loop and go around and around... Afterwards, we decided that next year, we'll focus on school events all week and spread them around the island. Thank you to all who helped!

We shared a great morning yesterday in front of Outspokin Bikes, celebrating bicycle transportation with great snacks and camaraderie. This morning, we'll be up in front of the Islands Trust office, by BC Hydro with a table to greet bikers. Happy trails~
