Three Wheels Of Awesome – Episode 3

What a morning! Our rides along the Boggy Creek Greenbelt typically stop and turn around when the trail hits Rosewood Avenue, but not today. The weather was so gorgeous and the riders were feeling strong, so we kept going…

…over the bridge and through the woods…

…all the way to 12th Street. All things told, it was a 1.6-mile loop. Not a bad way to start a Thursday.  🙂

We had our second and third Orientation Classes for New Rollers at Conley-Guerrero this morning and energy was high. It’s hard to believe how much interest we have seen from the community. Sixteen new Rollers were introduced to the basics of trike maneuvering and are now geared up for future trail riding.  (Safety Tip: If you ever feel out of control, just squeeze the breaks and voilà – you are just sitting in a chair!)

Among the new Rollers was 94-year-old Frymlee Cannon, who had never ridden a bicycle in her life. What a great time to get started! Way to go Mrs. Cannon!

It’s happening! The Golden Rollers of Conley-Guerrero Senior Center officially kicked off the spring season with our first Orientation Class for New Rollers this morning. The group shared stories about their cycling pasts and discussed expectations for the program before trying out the trikes in the parking lot. Everyone in attendance was approved for the Trails & More Classes and we can’t wait to start rolling!
