Columbia to meet school children in Solvang

Columbia-Highroad will participate in a "Ride-By" visit at the school in Solvang, California, on February 9. School kids from grade four to grade six will get a chance to meet the professional cyclists as they ride up to the school yard. The event is part of the educational curriculum of the Amgen Tour of California.

A specially developed classroom curriculum has been distributed to fourth through sixth-grade instructors and students in the 16 California "host" cities selected for the race. A free English and Spanish booklet given to students provides information about the state of California, including targeted lesson plans that use cycling to teach math, science and geography.
