Two RETSD schools united to hit the trails with their bikes and their enthusiasm. Teacher David Markham from Joseph Teres School and teacher Patricia Tomczyk from Westview School (a former student of Mr. Markham) are leading staff, students, and their families in a mountain bike club.
Mr. Markham started the club at Joseph Teres in 1990, and this year Westview students hopped on board. They've circled the Transcona Bioreserve, raced at Morley Kare Park, and travelled the Transcona Trail.
The last ride was September 27 from Transcona to Bird's Hill Park, totalling about five hours of biking to and around Bird's Hill, and all cyclists completed the ride. While at the park, the group enjoyed a barbecue, some pick-up football, and hot chocolate around a bonfire. They send out thanks to all the staff and parent volunteers who helped make the event safe and a day to remember.
