FLORENCE – Students from JFK Middle School’s Gaining Opportunity Through Active Learning and Support, or GOALS, program got a chance to try out adaptive cycling at Look Park in Florence on Thursday thanks to a collaboration with All Out Adventures, which provided the single and tandem recumbent trikes. Several students and education support professionals took a walking field trip to the park where they met with AOA staff and learned how to operate the cycles. Then, after a few warm-up laps around the parking lot, all embarked on a complete loop, wagon-train style, around the park.
