On Friday, April 6, a group of approximately 100 bike riders rode through Ramona.

The group was composed of fifth-graders from the Rancho Penasquitos YMCA, along with some of their parents and older siblings. Each year, the fifth-graders ride from the Colorado River to the Pacific Ocean, camping along the way. This group had spent the previous night in Julian.

“These kids are amazing,” said Diane Hunter, one of the parents. “They are on their spring break, and they ride 268 miles. It’s a character-building, life-changing experience for them.”

The Ramona leg of their journey was the next-to-last day of the riders’ trip.
