I did my first school visit today. I talked to the kindergartners about the team, did a cross demonstration and talked to them about sustainable cycling/local food. Where I live there are several small local farms. We eat seasonal foods from these farms for school lunch. The kids were responsive to biking as a means of transportation instead of driving.
They were enthusiastic about cross when they saw me jump over the barriers and remount the bike. The teacher said, “Kids, you shouldn’t try this at home, he’s a trained athlete.”
