Cultural Action Network shared PODER (SF)'s photo. ...

Today's Sunday Examiner Joe Fitzgerald Rodriguez writes a featured article on Bicis De Pueblo. "On a recent foggy Saturday morning in the Excelsior, Evelyn Ruiz, 32, walked into San Francisco Community School’s yard with her son Pablo, 4, who confidently rode a Spider-Man-themed bike, training wheels and all. Ruiz emigrated from Guatemala when she was a teenager and attended Newcomer High School. She quickly joined PODER. But contrary to the popular saying, Ruiz had, indeed, forgotten how to ride. “I had heard about [Bicis Del Pueblo] a long time ago actually, when it started,” she said, noting her initial reaction to the program. “That’s for kids, that’s for teenagers.” Flash-forward to this summer: Ruiz brought her 17-year-old brother, Kevin, to Bicis Del Pueblo to learn to ride. Ruiz said her young son would stand by watching and shout, “Yeah, Mama, you’ve got it!” #bicicletando #hechonocomprado #doittogether #bikeequity #communitycooperative #bicisdelpueblo #bikeshare#sfbike
