BATTLE CREEK– Battle Creek residents should keep an eye out for over 80 kids riding through the streets on their brand new bicycles, thanks to city activist Bobby Holley.
Kids across the nation have become more acquainted with being indoors than in past years due to COVID-19 and the state’s mandatory orders in regards to staying indoors and staying safe. For Battle Creek social justice activist Bobby Holley that needed to change.
On July 1, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer made an executive order to lift mask mandates and allow social gatherings to start up again throughout the state. This would come just after the beginning of summer for most Michigan kids. A summer that Holley said kids needed to be outside participating in.
“These kids, man, they’ve been inside for months. No summer camps, no field trips or nothing.
