Last Sunday, June 9th, the Safe Routes to School team and Millbrae School District hosted Bike Fest for families in the community. Parents and kids came together to ride their bikes up and down the hilly neighborhoods of Millbrae. With two route options, there was something for everyone whether it was a short spin to prepare the legs for summer riding, or a longer, sweat-inducing ride complete with a daring descent back to the park.
After the rides, participants lounged in sunny Central Park noshing on homemade kale salad, hamburgers, and smoothies they created on the bicycle blender. The bicycle proved (yet again) to be a powerful device in bringing communities together.
