This summer we’ve been partnering with Operation Breakthrough to bring our Youth Education program to their students. Their Leadership class has been learning about bike safety and handling skills, bike maintenance, active transportation advocacy, and walkability audits. This morning they celebrated their hard work with a group ride to visit the BikeWalkKC office for ice cream and a tour of the Kansas City B-cycle workshop.
