CYCLE Kids is Headed to the Lone Star State!

We’re thrilled to announce that our dedicated friends and supporters, Peter Staneland and the Corpus Christi Cycling Club, have raised enough funds to bring CYCLE Kids to their home state of Texas. We met Peter in 2010 when he won a spot on our Boston Marathon team. Inspired by the efficacy of the CYCLE Kids program that so mirrored his own values, Peter and the Corpus Christi Cycling Club raised all the funds necessary to bring CYCLE Kids home to Texas. The program begins on August 17th during the London Independent Elementary School’s physical education classes. Hundreds of children over the next several years will benefit from this generous gift. “Educating children about cycling will help promote fitness for an eternity," Peter says of the sea of change this new partnership seeks to inspire.
