DEVO Coaches at Sunnyside Elementary

  |   Uncategorized

DEVO coaches Chad and Anne spent two tuesdays, November 4th and 18th, with the Kids Kamp program at Sunnyside Elementary School teaching the kids about bicycle safety and basic maintenance. The kids’ ages ranged from 5 to 9 and about 15 total were in attendance each day. It was silly at best and controlled chaos at bestest. The children were eager to tackle the art of bike pumpage, spinning of the wheels, calling us out on our dirty display bikes and always down for being sidetracked with interesting facts about their dad’s bike. Thanks to Miss Molly for her soft words of encouragement and doing her best at corralling the children into our focus on the beauty of the bike. sunnyside-elementry-kids-kamp If you would like the DEVO coaches at your school, contact annie@durangodevo.com. The kids are alright.
