On Thursday, July 27, several organizers and other riders participated in a "Show and Tell" event at The Learning Center for the Deaf. The Show and Tell allowed students from TLC's Marie Philip School and Walden School to learn about motorcycle safety and gear, to meet bikers, and to sit on the motorcycles, try on helmets, and rev the engines. The students (and staff) enjoyed the fun and interactive morning!
