This week the Safe Routes team kicked off our summer SUN Cycle program at Earl Boyles Elementary, teaching bike safety to a bunch of young riders. It's our second summer of offering free summer bike programming via our SUN school partners, and as per usual, it's been a blast. It's also been hot - really hot.
So, without further ado, here's the Safe Routes secret recipe for staying active and having fun in the heat:
Our participants have loved visiting the water spray features at Earl Boyles Park and Raymond Park in East Portland. They totally drench themselves every time. We think you'll love visiting parks with spray features to cool down with as well. Check out the list below or click here to see them on map:

Keep cool, have fun, and stay active!
