BikeWalkKC Helps Teach Girls Bike Skills at CAMP WIN Sports Camp

Last week, BikeWalkKC’s Education and Outreach Coordinator, Maggie Priesmeyer, had the privilege of partnering with Theresa Van Ackeren, owner of Family Bicycles in Waldo and a handful of awesome volunteers to provide a cycling session at Camp WIN Sports Camp for 6-8 year old girls. Camp WIN was held at Rockhurst University and bikes were provided by Elizabeth Bejan at RevolveKC

Despite the heat and sun, over 150 girls participated throughout the day, learning cycling skills such as the ABC Quick check, improving handling skills by riding through a slalom course and practicing starting/stopping and exiting a driveway. BikeWalkKC was happy to be involved with such an empowering event for future female cyclists in Kansas City!
