BikeRodeo 01

Brody Cossey, 9, rides through a course on his bicycle to learn safe cycling practices Friday during Bright Futures Bicycle Rodeo as Oceano Elementary School celebrated Green Apple Day to live healthier and more environmentally friendly lives.

Oceano Elementary School students launched a year of health and energy efficiency initiatives Friday in celebration of an international movement to promote healthy eating, exercise and conservation in schools.

Students walked and biked to school; participated in a bicycle rodeo highlighting after-school biking activities; and sorted milk cartons, paper boats and produce in what educators called a zero-waste initiative.

“We’ve been doing this for years,” said Jim DeCecco, a sixth-grade teacher at Oceano.
