PUEBLO, CO (June 10, 2020) – At the Pueblo County Boys & Girls Clubs of Pueblo County (BGCPC), we use our bikes as part of BGCPC’s Healthy Lifestyles outcome area, teaching kids about bike safety, responsibility and care while providing an enriching program of outdoor activity. As part of the bike program, kids also learn how to change tires, general bike maintenance and trail riding skills. The bikes and helmets are sanitized and cleaned before and after each time they are used in accordance with the Pueblo Department of Public Health and Environment.

“At the Senior Resource Development Agency (SRDA) temporary BGCPC site, our teens have been able to use the Historic Arkansas Riverwalk, Runyon Lake and local biking trails along the Pueblo River Trail System to stay active outdoors while at the club. Some of our teens are learning to ride bikes and fish for the very first time!” said Ryan Brusak, Athletic Program Director. As Kami G. from the East Side Clubhouse said “You can workout without getting as tired, and just enjoy the outdoors.”

BGCPC's "Rocky's Riders" Bike Program is made possible with the support of the Kirk “Rocky” Derichsweiler Memorial Fund. Special thanks to the Hermit Lakes Fishing association for donating equipment, our members are putting lifelong learning skills to use and can stay active for the rest of their life!
