Schwinn Bikes stunt cyclist Chris Clark presented some AMAZING tricks today at Holcomb Elementary School with an inspiring presentation for staff and third and fourth grade students! Chris’ school program was developed to inspire children to find an active, healthy passion and use their desire to constantly improve as a means for keeping their lives on track, making healthy decisions, and surrounding themselves with like-minded friends. Following the speaking portion of the program, Chris shows the audience what is possible with hard work and dedication with a demonstration of the skills he has developed in his years of national and international cycling competitions. Students see first-hand what can be achieved with hard work, dedication, and by leading a healthy lifestyle. #onefps #schwinnbikes #dialedactionsports
