2012 was a great year for the Cascade Bicycle Club Education Foundation, and we’re looking forward to an even better 2013!
Let’s look back on a few highlights before rolling into the new year:
- We held 167 classes last year in maintenance, riding and commuting. We served 883 students, 57 percent of whom were women.
- One notable surprise was the sheer number of people, both adults and children, who wanted to learn to ride a bike for the first time. William Gerdes and Lara Sirois taught 84 sessions of Learn to Ride for 42 students who now have the ability to ride their bikes. Way to go!
- I would like to extend a special thanks to all our instructors who made it possible to offer high quality and informative classes to businesses and individuals in our ever-growing biking community:
Let’s also extend a warm welcome to our newly minted batch of League of American Bicyclists certified instructors:
In addition to our regular menu of classes, we are adding “Maintenance Overview” and “Biking Around Town for Work and Play” in 2013. The new year will also see the launch of an updated Family Biking Program. Look for more information on those in the coming months.
