It has been a rainy spring, but rain didn't stop our sixth graders at Lowville Academy Middle School from closing their books and experiencing a day of outdoor recreation -- mountain biking at the Black River Outdoor Education Program Inc. in Boonville, New York. The educational field trip provided students with an appreciation for and understanding of our environment while engaging in outdoor aerobics.
The BROEP generously provided appropriate-sized bikes and safety equipment for all the students. Before hitting the trails, the outdoor explorers reviewed safety guidelines and practiced how to shift bikes to maintain consistent peddling speed whether going up hill or down. Before long, they were tackling the woodsy trails.

One determined outdoor enthusiast didn't let a little thing like a broken leg stop her from enjoying the day. While on a nature walk, she photographed patterns in nature and is in the process of creating a video: Everything You Missed While Riding A Bike (coming soon).
Thank you Black River Outdoor Education Program Inc. for a great day!
