Ready, Set, Gold! will be featured on Channel 4 this Sunday during the 6 o’clock news. The segment, called “Life Connected,” profiles RSG! Olympian Giddeon Massie (cycling) and the L.A. Leadership Academy Bike Club.
The Bike Club was started by two teachers so that their students would have an after-school social activity and could avoid the negative influences infesting their community like gangs, drugs, homelessness, racism, etc.
The Club started with just a handful of students, but with hard work, perseverance and Giddeon planting the seed of using bicycles and bicycling as a motivating force, the Club has grown substantially to nearly 40 members.
They ride about 10 miles through their neighborhood every Friday afternoon. Last Friday, the Channel 4 cameras came out to video the Club in action.
It is a very uplifting and inspiring story and we hope you will tune in.
