We kicked off the month of October on Saturday 10/1 with another great GreenTown Los Altos “First Saturday” bike ride. We had a record dozen children under 10 – with lots of kids on bikes or kids simply taking in the scenery from the comfort of bike trailers. There was even one amazing 3 1/2 year-old, Weston, riding a two-wheeler WITHOUT training wheels! He covered at least half the trip, pumping his muscular little legs on his miniature cycle, then relaxed for a snooze with a friend in a bike trailer. Gary Hedden led 24 riders on the back streets of Los Altos. We learned about some of our historical buildings along the way, stopped briefly at the History Museum to talk about the upcoming exhibition “Shaped by Water,” stopped again at Almond Elementary School to check out the gardens of the Living Classroom and finally made our way to the best stop of all – The Creamery at Rancho Shopping Center for ice cream. Some terrific prizes from Chef Chu’s, Peggy’s Health Center and Bicycle Outfitters were raffled off in a free drawing.
Join us next month on Saturday, November 5 at 4 pm.
