A large group of kids from middle schools around the county rode through the Forest of Nisene Marks last Saturday, May 30. Sunshine filtered through the redwood canopy and warmed us on our ride. At our lunch stop alongside Aptos Creek, a few of us learned how to skip stones, and others went “spelunking”. Tawn Kennedy and Steve Piercy led the riders from New Brighton and Mission Hill Middle Schools, and kids in the Earn a Bike program in Watsonville.
