Kommute For Kids Bike Giveaway!
30 bikes were delivered to Longfellow Elementary School in Riverside on Monday, December 5th. The kids and their families were pretty excited about the shiny new Free Agent BMX bikes and Kali Protective helmets that you earned for them through our “Kommute For Kids” Bike Donation Program.
Mike Cachat gave a few encouraging words to the kids and also received an award from the City of Riverside for the generous donation of bikes made each year by Jenson USA.
Trevor gave a rad bike performance and had the kids cheering him on and dreaming of the tricks they could do one day.
The kids also got a good laugh at my giant flash cards with pictures that I made for the Bicycle Safety Tips. Hopefully the tips will keep them safe on the road.
One of the winners wrote in his essay:
“The bike can take me to the dentist to get my teeth checked and to keep them clean and healthy. I can go to the pet store to buy food for my pets. I can race my cousins and friends to exercise and have fun. My bike can take me ANYWHERE! No matter where I go riding my bike is an EPIC ride.”
