I drove by the site in the Skeena Mall parking lot and paused to see some of the riders in action. Those kids were not joy-riding! The body language and serious look on the kids' faces told me that this was serious business for them. Good work RCMP and all others who put this on.Terrace Community Spirit rocks!! ( as the kids would say).

Far too many incidents involve cars and bicycles.
This should be run again proir or shortly after schools starts.
Good job by all who were involved
