Ahead of Walk & Roll week, Maria will conduct family training rides for parents and kids wishing to check out a safe biking route to Greendell. The guided bike ride will begin at Palo Verde, proceed to Greendell, and return to Palo Verde. There will be an opportunity for parents to test out the safety measures that have been put en route.
Note: attending the Bringing up Bicyclists training is a prerequisite for participating in the guided bike ride session.
