Recently, Tradewind Energy and the Tradewind Energy Cycling Team, in partnership with Sunflower Outdoor Bike Shop, hosted the 3rd Annual Bike Safety Fair for Woodlawn Elementary School in Lawrence, KS. Students in K-5th grade gathered for an overview on bicycle safety taught by the Tradewind Cycling Team and then participated in stations including an obstacle course, races and bike tuning.
Six members of the cycling team were in attendance to host the event, including Steve Tilford, Bill Stolte, Brian Jensen, Benn Stover, Garrick Valverde and Austin Elser. Over the past three years, Tradewind Energy has been honored to donate 283 helmets, 230 sets of bike safety lights, and 21 bikes to the students of Woodlawn. A special thanks to the Tradewind Energy Cycling Team, and our partners at Sunflower Outdoor & Bike Shop for their continued partnership, and for the generous donation of time and resources in support of this event.
