The Bikes of Burroughs -- The gym looked like a bike shop all week!

What can a gym class do in 55 minutes?

The "Beachcombers" in K-2nd grades ran or scooted to the South Beach of Lake Harriet where they made sand castles and learned respectful beach and trail etiquette. Sixteen classes of 432 students ran the parkway for a combined 864 miles.

In addition, more than 350 3rd-5th graders biked 702 laps (about 2,387 miles) around Lake Harriet. The riders received many compliments for showing respect and good bicycle safety and etiquette.

Thank you teachers and parents — and our University of Wisconsin River Falls Physical Education student helpers! (And thank you Mr. Hill and Mr. Peterson, our wonderful & inventive gym teachers!)
