Bike Hutto Kicks Off Vida Fest with Bike Ride to Promote Health

VidaFest2015_BikeHuttoRide

Bike Hutto will be leading a family-friendly bike ride on August 8th to kick off Vida Fest. The ride, which is open to anyone who has a bicycle and would like to participate, will start at the Hutto High School parking lot and will follow Carl Stern the two blocks to the Nadine Johnson Elementary School where Vida Fest is taking place. Bicyclists of all ages will be meeting at the high school at 8am and will time the ride to arrive at Vida Fest right at 8:30am.

Vida Fest is an outreach program, whose mission is to serve and help the community by meeting the needs of our city; one child, one family at a time. This program has worked to provide for children from the City of Hutto, and its surrounding areas to ensure they are equipped with school supplies to succeed in the new school year. This festival, now in its fifth year, provides free school supplies and back packs as well as free haircuts and immunizations.  http://www.vidafest.org/

Bike Hutto will also have a booth at Vida Fest and will be providing free basic tune-ups for kids bikes, as well as bike safety materials generously provided by Texas Department of Transportation and Please Be KIND To Cyclists. Children storybooks emphasizing the importance of safety will be available free in both English and Spanish.

Physical activity is associated with improved academic performance in children and adolescents. The kick off bike ride is a great way to symbolize kids and families starting off the school year in an active living/wellness frame of mind!

Vida Fest will be held at Nadine Johnson Elementary School located at 480 Carl Stern Blvd, Hutto, TX 78634. The Bike Hutto bike ride will start at Hutto High School located at 101 Farm to Market 685, Hutto, TX 78634.

First Event For Bike Hutto!

BikeHuttoSocialRide

 

Bike Hutto will be holding its first event, a social ride and picnic, on Saturday, February 7th.  Bicyclists in the community will be meeting at Hutto’s Fritz Park at 12:00pm (by the hippos of course) for this family-friendly event.

A “Bring Your Own Lunch” picnic will start things off.  Over lunch, future plans and ideas will be discussed.

After lunch,  attendees will ride down the Cottonwood Creek Trail to Nadine Johnson Elementary School and the back to Fritz Park.

For those who would like a longer ride, they can plot out an extended ride to do on the country roads in the afternoon after our trail ride.

The Bike Hutto Social Ride is a great way to showcase (and perhaps introduce to some) Hutto’s Cottonwood Creek Trail, as well as get feedback and ideas as members share what they would like to see Bike Hutto become!  We will also be doing a group activity “selfie” as part of the HEB Community Challenge.

If you are interested in biking and being a part of Bike Hutto, this is the perfect introductory event to attend!
