I'm riding a bike for a great cause- and also I'm riding a bike- Period! I'm so excited for UWNYC's first Bike Tour and we're raising money for our #SPREADTHEWORDS campaign. Here's why this is so important. Research shows us that children from low-income families may hear up to 30 million fewer words than their more affluent peers by age three - thus making less likely to understand many of the words on this website by the time they are in high school. That is unacceptable and I choose to do something about it in my own small way - so I hope you join me and help in any way you can.
