River City Bicycles, Word Web Hosting, Cyclisme Racing Programs, and The Kids of b.i.k.e. presented The Alpenrose Velodrome
to the new Blazer Boys and Girls Club Cycling Team today.
Having trained their young protoge's for over a year back at The Club, the kids of Bicycles and Ideas for Kid's Empowerment were proud to introduce their pals from Blazer Boys and Girls Clubs of America to the steep banks of Alpenrose Velodrome.
Today was just an orientation day for drinking ice tea, eating apple slices, and walking through the basics of track racing. Meanwhile, Word-RCB racers demonstrated the Olympic Sprint, Pace Lines and The Madison Race made famous by Major Taylor.
But nobody got out of yoga.
Born to be a bicycle racer, always one to ask to go outside, never missing a class, Blessing Jemison had been counting the days til her arrival at The Track.
Blazer kids loved it!
"Rollers 101" back at "The Club."
The young Coaches like Dey Shaun Lee and Kent Ross taught pacelines and yoga with benevolence and good form.
All under the watchful eye of adults.
Tim Sicocan of Boys and Girls Club says, "it's a hit with the kids!"
