to get ice cream twice a month, on girls
and boys rides, ever since. We have even
had several family rides on weekends to
show parents the positive nature of riding a bike.
Over time, with the support of our
principals, the staff of Oceano has tried
to keep the enthusiasm for cycling alive
by looking for and jumping on opportunities as they arrive. When a staff member saw a cycle training course 3 years ago
while on vacation in Italy and emailed a
picture of it to then principal Ron Walton, Oceano's very own cycle training
course was soon installed with four-way
stops, yield signs and even a roundabout.
From there our state award-winning PE
instructor, Kim Shrode, capitalized on
the new infrastructure to start bike safety
instruction during PE on our monthly
Bike to School Days. PE instruction includes a bike license test in 5th grade that
covers the rights and responsibilities of
a bicyclist and tests basic maintenance
skills, such as inflating tires on our outdoor bike work station.
Other opportunities arrive in the form
of partnerships with various organizations. Oceano has partnered with Rideshare and their Safe Routes to School
program for years to help fund our
monthly Walk to School Days and separate Bike to School Days. Our partnership with Project Hero, an organization
that helps wounded veterans rehabilitate through cycling, is one of the most
meaningful activities the school does all
year. In addition to working with veterans, Oceano has partnered with national
celebrities such as Mr. Eco and Erin Inglish to celebrate biking by being filmed
in some of their music videos. The school
has also partnered with the county jail
on a program that collects old bikes and
inmates make them new again. Some of
those refurbished bikes are given to the
students of Oceano who do not have
bikes. We have individuals that donate
bikes that would have been sent to the
dumpster. These bikes are placed on a
lawn in front of a classroom with tools
and some Simple Green. Students then
clean, try to fix or just dismantle the
bikes for parts before or after school and
