East Middle School bike program gets rolling

Grand Junction, CO – On Monday, Oct. 2, 2017, East Middle School unveiled 10 of the 30 bikes the school received thanks to a Riding for Focus grant from the Specialized Foundation! The remaining bikes are being built locally by Ruby Canyon Cycles and are expected to arrive later in the week.

As a Riding for Focus grant recipient, East will receive 30 bikes and helmets, a maintenance kit, program curriculum and training to establish a long-term, sustainable cycling program. Students can take advantage of the program starting second quarter through gym classes or a specials class devoted entirely to cycling.
