1,000 bikes and counting

by Jeremy Walsh

"What measures 20 inches, is hot pink and lime green, and has the word 'Trouble' splashed across its frame? It's the 1,000th bike that was donated to a deserving community member, thanks to the work of students in the Del Valle Bicycle Repair Program."

That's how Livermore school district officials recapped the special presentation on Sept. 18 during which the milestone bicycle was given to Kids Bike Lane for distribution to a youngster in need of a new bike.

The program at Del Valle Continuation High School has grown from an after-school activity six years ago into a regular school session that has trained 125 students on bicycle mechanics to date.
