Moises Torres from Global Connections High School in SeaTac at the 2010 STP. Moises arrived in Portland ahead of everyone else that year (by more than three hours!), and had an idea to wait for his fellow riders at the University of Portland, so everyone could finish together. MTP continues this tradition of re-grouping at the University, crossing the finish line together every year.
Jaden Smith, a sophomore at Foss High School tests out an adaptive bike. Jaden later got on a two wheeled bike, and now he rides his own bike; all in one MTP season! One of the programâ€™s goals in the next five years is to serve more students with adaptive cycling needs.
