Three Wheels of Awesome-Episode 12

The Golden Rollers have been biking around with us during our Spring program for the past six weeks. Within those six weeks, we have had over 150 new riders to the program. We have held over 50 classes between Gus Garcia Recreation, Metz Recreation, Dittmar Recreation, Mcbeth Recreation, Alamo & Givens Recreation, Conley-Guerrero Senior Activity Center, and Foundation Communities M Station. This has allowed our students (in total) to have participated over 400 times!

A huge thank you goes to St. David’s Foundation for rewarding Ghisallo Cycling Initiative with a grant to expand the Golden Rollers program. With their generosity, we have been able to get so many participants on bicycles and out exploring Austin!

Hoi told me she wanted to join to Golden Rollers so she could show her kids she learned how to ride a trike. She’s attended three classes and is riding like a pro!
The rain can’t stop us from rolling! We’re lucky Conley-Guerrero Senior Activity Center has a covered path.
Baldo is one of our oldest riders. Even at 90 years young, he rides twice a week at Gus Garcia Recreation Center. His exercise is looping the track 15x on gear 7!
