Young riders hit the trails in 2018 at the Brownstone Bike Fest at Mt. Valhalla Recreation Area west of Washburn. The North Coast Cycling Association will host a fundraiser Friday to help Washburn Elementary School teacher Matthew Goodness buy equipment to teach all kindergartners how to bike ride.

The younger they are, the easier it is to get tykes on bikes, learning to balance, pedal and steer their way to mastering an enjoyable lifelong sport.

But not all children have the opportunity to learn at a young age. That’s a predicament physical education teacher Matthew Goodness intends to fix by launching bicycle manufacturer Strider’s All Kids Bike program at Washburn Elementary School — as soon as enough funds are raised to cover costs.
