As 2017 comes to a close, we’ve been reflecting on Bike & Stride events and what an amazing year it has been! We sincerely thank all of the communities and organizations that welcomed us! And a special thanks to our local law enforcement, school districts, and non-profit organizations that partnered with us to make Bike & Stride successful. We look forward to finding new and innovative ways to continue this program into 2018 and additional opportunities to extend our outreach to Tulare County communities we haven’t yet reached. Stay tuned!
