Fourth annual Bicycle Extravaganza honors late P.E. teacher
Offering a bicycle repair clinic, a bike swap, and a series of rodeo events, the annual Gaylynne Ullerich Bicycle Extravaganza got underway Saturday morning at Edmonds’ Seaview Elementary School.
Named for late Edmonds School District teacher and bicycle enthusiast Gaylynne Ullerich, the event drew more than fifty participants. Ullerich, who was known for promoting the Bikes in Schools program, bicycling to her teaching job at Madrona School, and promoting cycling in the community, lost her life in 2012 in a tragic car accident.
“This is the fourth year we’ve held this event,” said Lib Rust, Madrona teacher and co-event coordinator along with twin sister and fellow teacher Amy Rust. “The first year we held it at Madrona, but the space here at Seaview is so much better for this event.”
