Spring Fling!!

Another successful Spring Fling. For the fifth year running we brought out a lot of kids to have a lot of fun out at Floyd Bennett Field. A big thanks to the Park Service and all the Rangers at Floyd Bennett field as well as the other groups that came out and helped. The Audubon Society, Ultimate Disc, Marine Park Golf, and Urban Park Rangers of the NY Parks department.

Now here’s some pictures of the day.

Millennium Development Executive Director Paul and Bicycle Educator pose with the graduates of the inaugural cohort of cycling instructors here at Millennium Development. After a grueling day of Skill Drills, bike mechanics, and riding safety our newly minted cycling instructors are ready to head out and give kids the skills they need to ride safely and confidently around the city and around the world. The new team will be training cyclists in Marine Park, Rockaway, and Bay View/Canarsie.
