At 9:30 on Wednesday, January 30, the full team will stop by Solvang Elementary School to meet with more than 200 students in the 4th, 5th and 6th grades to provide personal insight about cycling, health benefits, bike safety and their experiences, as well as sign autographs. The event is being coordinated by 6th grade teacher/cyclist John Padfield, who is the volunteer Director of Education Outreach for the Amgen Tour of California Solvang Local Organizing Committee (LOC). Solvang is once again hosting the Stage 5 time trial.

The visit is part of an educational outreach program developed in conjunction with the Amgen Tour of California. A specially developed classroom curriculum is being distributed to 4th through 6th grade instructors and students in the 12 “host” cities for the race. A free English and Spanish booklet given to students provides information about the state of California, including targeted lesson plans that use cycling as a means to teach core subjects such as math, science and geography.

After the visit, which will last about a half hour, the team will head out for its regular 5-6 hour training ride.

Also, Health Net Presented by Maxxis riders Tim Johnson and Roman Kilun will stop by the “Family Fun & Movie Night” fundraising event, co-hosted by the Solvang School Parent-Teacher Organization and the Solvang LOC, Saturday, February 2 at 6 p.m. Johnson and Kilun will give a short talk and sign autographs before departing for the team’s official presentation later that evening.
