Our 2023 Community Spotlight recognition goes to Coach Victor Crowell and the Dalraida Bicycle Club. Coach Crowell started a bike club at his school, Dalraida Elementary School, where he teaches Physical Education. DBC currently serves 66 students grades K - 8. Their mission is simple: To promote bicycle safety, fitness, health, wellness, and social skills. You can help them continue their work through a donation.
The Montgomery Bicycle Club recognizes the Dalraida Bicycle Club for their outstanding work and accomplishments. Your donation will allow the club to continue paying for licensing of their monitoring equipment, post-ride snacks, and Challenge Awards. Please help us encourage safe cycling in the River Region for our Community Spotlight Club by supporting this program for years to come through your donation.
