Peg’s Posts: students spin to be green


IMG_9076-sm IMG_9071Last week I had a chance to mix up a few of my favorite topics — fitness, families and being green — at a math and science night at a local school. Garmin associates Greg and Kerri helped with our interactive demo where we invited young participants to see how pedaling their way to school and errands is the green way to go. With the help of a Garmin speed/cadence sensor and an Edge 800 bike computer, the students were able to see their spin speed while the bike was secured in a trainer. Plenty of “time trials” ensued throughout the evening with young riders wanting to one-up their buddy’s speed. We were impressed with how many students are already biking to school. The school supports this effort by offering bike safety training for students so they can safely navigate their way once they hit third grade. Greg and I were also awed by a few students who’d been on longer rides — 10 miles and more — which means they are now on our scouting list. We figure with the right gear and a little training, they could be sporting argyle very soon for The Other Team Garmin at Bike MS.
