Learning to Ride

Mr. Farmen's kindergarten PE class is learning to ride bikes (pedals and all). "All Kids Bike" is a national movement led by the Strider Education Foundation to place Kindergarten PE "Learn-To-Ride" programs into public schools (at no cost to the schools). Our school was granted these bikes a few years ago. How cool is that?
