The “Learn to Ride” program that’s taught hundreds of children and adults to ride bicycles returns Saturday, October 28th this time to Berewick Recreation Center in southwest Charlotte.
Kids of all ages can kick the training wheels and roll to a healthier lifestyle using Learn to Ride’s proven “balance bike” method. “Learn to Ride” was named “Best Kids Cycling Event” in North Carolina for 2016 by Endurance Magazine, and has been nominated for a 2017 Sustain Charlotte Award for Transportation.
Congratulations are also in order for the program’s co-founder, Dick Winters, who recently won the Joe Cogdell Volunteer Service Award from Partners for Parks. Winters earned the honor for his advocacy of cycling programs in Charlotte — especially for programs for children, like “Learn to Ride.” Winters is the Built Environment and Safe Routes to School coordinator for the Mecklenburg County Health Department, and serves on several cycling and recreation committees, as well as Trips for Kids Charlotte and the Charlotte Re-Cyclery.
