The team went to Glencoe Central Junior High to tell them a bit about bike racing and bike safety.
We had a huge group of 5th graders, 170 kids and only 1 did not ride a bike! A lot of them raised their hands that they did NOT wear helmets, which was a bit shocking to me.
I showed them what can happen if they don't wear a helmet by demonstrating a bike 'crash'. I told them how cool it is to wear a helmet and they must wear it on every ride!
Christina got 3rd in the field sprint. It was a great race for us!
Laura Van Gilder from Mellow Mushroom/Rose Bandit wins from a field sprint. Followed by Erica Allar from Ride Clean/Patent it and our very own Christina Gokey-Smith getting 3rd. The podium boy was some famous dude: Matt Modine; actor!
One of my favorite races, although I will not be racing; I will be cheering from home!
