Y biking is a blast

More than 100 children and adults participated in the first ever YMCA Family Fun Bike Ride on Sunday. The San Ramon Valley YMCA partnered with Leadership San Ramon Valley Class of 2007 for the event. Before the afternoon bike ride, the Adventure Guides' Glowing Cougars presented the YMCA with a check for $1,001 which the children had saved over the course of the year to go toward the capital campaign to build the new Y.

Sunset Development provided a backpack for each rider, and Danville's Street Smarts campaign supplied bike bells and flashers. Bikers and walkers proceeded to the Iron Horse Trail where East Bay Regional Park District had designated four miles of the trail from Camille Avenue in Alamo to Rudgear Road in Walnut Creek for the ride. Stations along the route were manned by volunteers who handed out water supplied by ENGEO.

When participants returned to the park, they were served snacks prepared and donated by Now We're Cooking, then lingered in the park to listen to the music of Sheen, courtesy of the Leadership Class.
