Experienced riders can choose to go the whole distance, while those new to wheels can ride around the path surrounding the school playground. Pictured above are, from left, graduate Jorie Sieck, Sam Linden (obscured), graduate Zack Brintlinger-Conn, Evelyn Potter, graduate Samantha Bold and Zenya Hoff-Miyazaki.
