Testimonials from Parents

"Thank you so much for the incredible Pedal Power program. My son just finished his last day of the program at La Colina: he was so sad it was over. Before Pedal Power he was apprehensive about bike riding and not entirely comfortable. He summed it up perfectly today, as he said, "before I liked my bike, but now I love biking!" He is a much safer and confident rider: thanks to the amazing teachers! They did an amazing job teaching, encouraging and inspiring the kids." Kathy Mintzer (La Colina Junior High)

"THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! We are so grateful for the program. Serena has gained the confidence to ride, and more importantly, she enjoys riding. We can't wait for our younger daughter to participate next year!" (Parent at Goleta Valley Junior High).
