A great biking experience

Dear Editor:

My name is Emily Adams and I just completed sixth grade at Basalt Middle School. I would like to share with you how wonderful it was biking to my school last week.

My teacher, Ms. Jennifer Kauffman along with Community Safety Officer Michael Hutton, were so nice to arrange the entire biking experience. There were 23 kids, two teachers and my mom along with Ms. Kauffman and Officer Michael Hutton!

Most of us met in El Jebel near City Market at 6:50 a.m., then we rode our bikes on the bike path towards Willits where we met the remaining kids and a teacher. We took the bike path all the way to Basalt Middle School and it was so cool riding under/over bridges, seeing the river and enjoying the early morning with everyone.

When we arrived at school Officer Michael Hutton got all of us a treat at Midland Bakery and that was really nice of him. The best part of this entire experience is that we were exercising, getting outdoors and conserving energy in our community. Since that first bike ride many other kids have started to ride their bikes to school. I want to give special thank you to my teacher Ms. Kauffman and Officer Michael Hutton for giving us a wonderful opportunity.

They really care for kids and I hope we can continue to ride to school in the fall. Thanks!

Emily Adams
